The Y-chromosome haplogroup Q has three major branches: Q1, Q2, and Q3. Q1 is found in both Asia and the Americas where it accounts for about 90% of indigenous Native American Y-chromosomes; Q2 is found in North and Central Asia; but little is known about the third branch, Q3, also named Q1b-L275. Here, we combined the efforts of population geneticists and genetic genealogists to use the potential of full Y-chromosome sequencing for reconstructing haplogroup Q3 phylogeography and suggest possible linkages to events in population history.

That's the model for several other haplogroups, geneticists and genetic genealogists should work together as a good joint venture to expand our scientific knowlegde. Congratulation for all people involved in the article.

I still wonder how the portugese got there

Cool stuff, I wonder why Polish-1 clusters with the South/Central Asians?
