The Y Chromosome Consortium (YCC) was[1] a collection of scientists who worked toward the understanding of human Y chromosomal phylogenetics and evolution. The consortium had 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.[2] The consortium sponsored literature regarding updates in the phylogenetics and nomenclature.[3][4]
