Haplogroup CF
Possible time of origin 70,000-75,000 BP
Possible place of origin Southwest Asia
Ancestor CT
Descendants C, F
Defining mutations P143

In human genetics, Haplogroup CF, also known as CF(xDE), is a human male Y-DNA haplogroup. Macrohaplogroup CF is defined by the SNP P143. The existence and extinction of CF remain technically hypothetical, because no DNA belonging to paragroup CF* has yet been discovered.

CF is an immediate descendant of Haplogroup CT, and the sibling of Haplogroup DE.

It is the immediate ancestor of both Haplogroup C and Haplogroup F.[1]
