^ Indicates a next-generation sequencing entry which does not yet meet quality guidelines for minimum number of reads.
^^ Indicates an entry which does not meet quality guidelines but may be helpful.
~ Indicates only an approximate location on the tree.
|The criteria for a representative SNP printed in bold for a subclade is: traditional usage, testing done in multiple labs, and/or being found in the area of the chromosome used in recent research studies.|
|SNPs listed below in italics (colored black or red) are quality variants from next-generation sequencing reports consistently showing as representing that subgroup|
|DID YOU NOTICE that the items in gray sometimes have a long name preceding their listing that is the same as just above? In this situation, evidence seems to indicate they also seem to belong to the same subgroup, but some confirmatory evidence is not yet available.|

MUTATION INFORMATION AT VERY BOTTOM HERE
Identical SNPs that were discovered separately are listed in alphabetical order, not necessarily in the order of discovery,
and separated by "/". Examples: M5/P73, M104/P22, M177, SRY9138
Removed P35_1, P35_2, P35_3, not meeting quality guidelines on 11 August 2016.
The chromosome location for M-P256 shown in Karafet (2008) seems off by one chromosome position.
All M samples from next-generation sequencing show the same mutation at adjacent chromosome position 8685231.
So this is the position tentatively listed in the ISOGG index. Listed 31 August 2016.
Y-DNA haplogroup M
reaches its known peak in Papua New Guinea, totaling one-third to two-thirds of population.
The haplogroup M Aborigines in Australia seem comparatively to be the most recent arrivals among Aborigines (Bergstrom).
