Haplogroup M (Y-DNA)



In human genetics, Haplogroup M (M4) is a Y-chromosome DNA haplogroup.

Additional recommended knowledge

This haplogroup is associated with Near Oceania and Maritime Southeast Asia, particularly Melanesia, Micronesia, and eastern Indonesia.

It is a descendant haplogroup of haplogroup K, and is believed to have first appeared approximately 10,000 years ago.
