Y-DNA Adam

Newly discovered SNPs reveal that the earliest Y-DNA ancestor lived 338,000 years ago, not 70,000 to 130,000 years as previously thought. Since it is known that the earliest mtDNA ancestor lived much earlier, it will be interesting to learn how the new timeline develops.

This is pre-publication news so watch for the paper that should be published over the next months.
