    Question Any good books to help learn the various genetic markers and their origins

    Looking to educate myself to better understand some the information in this forum. Looking to understand all these haplogroup codes like R1b and other gene identifiers.

    As for books, genetic genealogy is developing at such a rapid pace that books on the subject quickly become out of date.

    Some years ago I used to recommend "Deep Ancestry" by Spencer Wells [2006]. It's written in a very approachable style and is still probably a reasonable primer, if you bear in mind its date and that things have moved on meanwhile. (Would suggest library or second hand.)
