Y-DNA and mtDNA data updated to Ancient DNA Dataset v. 2.01.19.
Y-DNA and mtDNA data updated to Ancient DNA Dataset v. 2.01.14.
Updated to version 2.01.14. I spent hours reviewing SNP calls for I2 subclades and adding positive, negative, and dubious SNPs. It was very interesting, but also very frustrating when I realized after spending so many hours during the weekend that I couldn’t find what I was looking for: a clear patrilineal connection between all Megalithic groups.
This post shows the result of that work.
Not a resource from Academia Prisca, but still worthy of attention: Alwin Kloekhorst’s App Vanished Voices, with help from other specialists of the Leiden School:

Y-DNA and mtDNA data updated to Ancient DNA Dataset v. 2.01.7.
Updated to version 2.01.7 with data from the new Cassidy et al. (2020) mostly updating data from her 2017 thesis.
Also added skin – hair – eye color data thanks to their assessments, even though they are limited to early available (and more ‘western’) samples.
The updated version of the Web App (announced here) includes
- The new corrected mtDNA haplogroups and further information.
- An update of symbols (borders and colors) for Y-DNA, especially I2 and I1 subclades.
Regarding I2, I thought it was particularly important to notice the different between Steppe-related branches (especially those appearing among the Yamnaya, which are later found in South Asia) and others.
Version 2.0x includes new columns for:
- FTDNA haplotree
- YFull mtree
- Responsible for mtDNA SNP calls and the SNP calls published by them.
- Lactase Persistence – now separated from “other”, more focused on diseases.
The most interesting part is the correction of nomenclature and hyperlinks, so that the file may be accurately used for mtDNA phylogeography.
Newly reported samples – or recently found by me – have also been added.
The new standard versions don’t have fields specific for GIS maps.

Update to version 1.93 with automated SNP calls from genotypes shared by Kolgeh (as suggested in comments).
Updated from version 1.91.9 to version 1.91.12, including the new Baikal samples from Yu et al. Cell (2020) and the Maros samples from Zegarac et al. bioRxiv (2020), as well as the few reported Trentino samples in Graeffen’s thesis (2020), the few mtDNA from East Asian genomes, or the few Inner Mongolia samples from Li et al. Phys. Anthr. (2020), which updates their previous Li et al. (2017) report.
