Q-L53 is a subclade of haplogroup Q-M346. Q-L53 is defined by the presence of the L53 Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP).

Distribution[edit]

Q-L53 has descendants across much of Eurasia and in the pre-Columbian Americas. It is the parent of the major Haplogroup Q-L54 branch.

Associated SNPs[edit]

Q-L53 is currently defined by the L53 SNP as well as the L55, L213, L331, L475, and L476 SNPs.
