Y-HaploGroup Population Browser

In human genetics, the haplogroups most commonly studied are Y-chromosome (Y-DNA) haplogroups and mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) haplogroups, both of which can be used to define genetic populations. Y-DNA is passed solely along the patrilineal line, from father to son, while mtDNA is passed down the matrilineal line, from mother to offspring of both sexes.

This software allows browsing and reporting of different population and their Y-chromosome (Y-DNA) haplogroups similarities and comparisons. All details are collected from Wikipedia and the reference for it will be available on the Wikipedia page.

Prerequisites: Java 5.0+
