Human Longevity Inc. has developed an online database of over 10,000 Genomes at https://search.hli.io/?q=. Sign-up is required, but free. They give a breakdown by World, Europe, Africa, and I believe some other regions.

Does anyone here know more about where these 10,000+ genomes came from (or did NOT come from)? The reason why I am asking is I had been using this database to track the frequency of the subclades of U106. I have recently noted where it is clear many of the subclades of Z18 appear to be seriously under-represented in this database. A noted Z18 researcher (Peter M.) has called Z18 "A North Sea Tribe". As such, it is possible this area is either not covered by the Open Search database, or is at least very under-represented.

I was hoping this Open Search database would give a reasonable approximation of the estimated prevalence of the subclades of U106 (at least in Europe), but unfortunately, it appears the numbers generated from this database are not an accurate representation of the population (Continent).

Typing into open search does nothing!

After I registered for Open Search, when I log into it, I get a basically blank page with a box that says: search for a vaiant, gene, region, drug or disease

I enter the Build 38 coordinates, then the ancestral value, then the derived value as follows:

chrY:8928037:c:t

then hit enter

Turned out Ghostery had blocked a tracker. Is it possible to search haplogroups ? If so how?

You need to search for SNPs (by build 38 position) rather than by haplogroups.

Thanks for the link to the database! I've just found someone else of the same unusual sub-clade of R-L2 as myself so that's a success as far as I'm concerned!

Could someone else do a test and try to find U152+ results as I just did a test to check that I was using the search correctly and cannot find any U152+ or P312+ people, presumably I am doing something wrong.

Are you using the "newer" Build 38 positions. Open Search uses this Build rather than the older Build 37. Also note the format: chrY:[position]:[and]:[der]

Yep, using the hg38 positions. This is my search for U152: "chrY:13221267:c:t"

I just tried the same query and seen where it was not found. This is in reality, impossible, so something is going on. Either their testing somehow was unable to read this location, or something is currently wonky with their site.
