The Y Chromosome Consortium (YCC) is a collection of scientists who work toward the understanding of human Y chromosomal phylogenetics and evolution. The consortium has the following objectives: web resources that communicate information relating to the non-recombinant region of the Y-chromosome including new variants and changes in the nomenclature.[1] The consortium sponsors literature regarding updates in the phylogenetics and nomenclature.[2][3]
