Paragroup R-M479*[edit]

Paragroup is a term used in population genetics to describe lineages within a haplogroup that are not defined by any additional unique markers. They are typically represented by an asterisk (*) placed after the main haplogroup.

Y-chromosomes which are positive to the M479 SNP and negative to the M124, P249, P267, L266, PAGES00004, and L381 SNPs, are categorized as belonging to Paragroup R-M479*. It should be noted that exclusive studies have not been done to determine frequency or presence of R-M479* and figures below are not indicative of R-M479* frequency, especially within South Asia since Pakistan is the only South Asian country included within the referenced study.

Haplogroup R-M124[edit]

Haplogroup R-M124 is a Y-chromosome haplogroup characterized by genetic markers L266, M124, P249, and P267, and is mainly found in South Asia and southern Central Asia.
