  • Has anyone else gotten this email from Yfull?

    Prof Mark Jobling and his PhD student Jodie Lampert at the University of Leicester, UK, are undertaking a project, "Growing the Y-chromosome tree with the help of citizen science".
    The project aims to enlist the help of "citizen scientists", members of the public who have undergone Y-chromosome sequencing via direct-to-consumer (DTC) companies, to gather as many Y sequences as possible from the British Isles (with a particular focus on Devon and Cornwall), and to combine these with published data.
    The aim is to explore the patrilineal history of this region, building a high-resolution Y phylogeny in which branch lengths are proportional to time, estimating the ages of major clusters and comparing with historical evidence for recent and ancient population movements and expansions.
