So this study was done in Socotra and out of 64 samples 71.4% of the Y-chromosomes belong to haplogroup J*(xJ1, J2) which is found at trace frequencies elsewhere. Interestingly, haplogroup J2 is not found in this isolated region, while haplogroup J1 is found at a frequency of 14.3%.
This gives us a glimpse that J* haplogroup may have originated from the south
whats your thoughts?
