Possible place of origin Southeast Asia - New Guinea
Ancestor MNOPS
Defining mutations M230, P202, P204
Highest frequencies Ekari 74% (Mona 2007)

In molecular evolution, a haplogroup (from the Greek: ἁπλούς, haploûs, "onefold, single, simple") is a group of similar haplotypes that share a common ancestor having the same single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) mutation in all haplotypes. Haplogroup S-M230is a Y-chromosome DNA haplogroup.

Origin

Distribution

Haplogroup S-M230 is commonly found among populations of the highlands of Papua New Guinea (Kayser 2003). It is also found at lower frequencies in adjacent parts of Indonesia and Melanesia.

One study has reported finding haplogroup S-M230 in 52% (16/31) of a sample from the Papua New Guinea highlands, 21% (7/34) of a sample from the Moluccas, 16% (5/31) of a sample from the Papua New Guinea coast, 12.5% (2/16) of a sample of Tolai from New Britain, 10% (3/31) of a sample from Nusa Tenggara, and 2% (2/89) of a sample from the West New Guinea lowlands/coast (Kayser 2003 and Cox 2006).

Phylogenetic history

Prior to 2002, there were in academic literature at least seven naming systems for the Y-Chromosome Phylogenetic tree. This led to considerable confusion. In 2002, the major research groups came together and formed the Y-Chromosome Consortium (YCC). They published a joint paper that created a single new tree that all agreed to use. Later, a group of citizen scientists with an interest in population genetics and genetic genealogy formed a working group to create an amateur tree aiming at being above all timely. The table below brings together all of these works at the point of the landmark 2002 YCC Tree. This allows a researcher reviewing older published literature to quickly move between nomenclatures.

Research publications

The following research teams per their publications were represented in the creation of the YCC tree.

2005 YCC tree

2008 YCC tree

From 2002 to 2008, it was known as Haplogroup K5.

Phylogenetic trees

This phylogenetic tree of haplogroup subclades is based on the YCC 2008 tree (Karafet 2008) and subsequent published research.
