The Human Genetic History Wiki-Project
WikiProject Human Genetic History. Some Wikipedians have formed this collaboration resource and group dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of Human genetic history and the organization of information and articles on this topic. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions and various resources; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians interested in the topic. If you would like to help, please join the project, inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list below.
Improve Wikipedia's coverage of human genetic history.
Create guidelines for articles about human genetic history.
The project covers all articles related to human genetic history, including articles about:
Human MtDNA and Y-DNA haplogroups
Genetics articles relating to human population genetics or genetic genealogy (examples:
SNPs, single tandem repeat, etc.) Other genetic traits that vary among human populations
Comparative Anthropoid Evolution.

Allele, Haplotype, or Haplogroup page organization
Typical structure of the article about haplogroup:
[Some info about origins.]
[Subclades tree]-try to create a cladogram image.
[Info about the distribution by regions and ethnic groups]
[Technical specifications of SNP and STR mutations]
[Modal haplotype(s) within the haplogroup according to examples found in populations]
[Popular surnames of haplogroup members.]
