Possible time of origin
Between 4,000 and 7,000 years ago
Possible place of origin
Asia or Beringia
Haplogroup Q-NWT01 is a subclade of Y-DNA Haplogroup Q-MEH2. Haplogroup Q-NWT01 is defined by the presence of the NWT01  Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP).
Distribution [ edit ]
Q-NWT01 has descendants in the
Northwest Territory of modern Canada. It was in these populations that it was discovered. 
The Americas [ edit ]
Q-NWT01 is present in
pre-Columbian populations in the Canadian Northwest. 
Because samples from Asia have not yet been tested for this lineage, its frequency there is uncertain.
Associated SNPs [ edit ]
Q-NWT01 is currently defined by only the NWT01 SNP. As part of the
National Geographic Geno 2.0 test, this SNP is labeled F746. This is because it was independently discovered in a Q-M120 sample sequenced with next generation technology. It can also be called PR4083 as it was labeled in a primate sample sequenced at Family Tree DNA's Genomic Research Center.

^ Haplogroup A0-T is also known as A0'1'2'3'4.
^ Haplogroup A1 is also known as A1'2'3'4.
^ Haplogroup LT (L298/P326) is also known as Haplogroup K1.
^ Between 2002 and 2008, Haplogroup T (M184) was known as "Haplogroup K2" – that name has since been re-assigned to K-M526, the sibling of Haplogroup LT.
^ Haplogroup K2a (M2308) and the new subclade K2a1 (M2313) were separated from Haplogroup NO (F549) in 2016. (This followed the publication of: Poznik GD, Xue Y, Mendez FL, et al. (2016). "Punctuated bursts in human male demography inferred from 1,244 worldwide Y-chromosome sequences". Nature Genetics. 48 (6): 593–9. PMC . 4884158 PMID 27111036. doi: 10.1038/ng.3559. In the past, other haplogroups, including NO1 (M214) and K2e had also been identified with the name "K2a".
^ Haplogroup K2b (M1221/P331/PF5911) is also known as Haplogroup MPS.
^ Haplogroup K2e (K-M147) was previously known as "Haplogroup X" and "K2a" (but is a sibling subclade of the present K2a).
^ Haplogroup K2b1 (P397/P399) is also known as Haplogroup MS, but has a broader and more complex internal structure.
^ Haplogroup P (P295) is also klnown as K2b2.
^ Haplogroup S, as of 2017, is also known as K2b1a. (Previously the name Haplogroup S was assigned to K2b1a4.)
^ Haplogroup M, as of 2017, is also known as K2b1b. (Previously the name Haplogroup M was assigned to K2b1d.)
