Human DNA, Male Line Y-DNA Data, and Other DNA Tests

The billions of human beings living on the earth today all belong to one species: Homo sapiens.

Even with the variations among individual human beings, size and shape, skin tone and eye color,

we are remarkably similar, and the DNA of all human beings living today is 99.9% alike [11].

Human cells contain 23 pairs of chromosomes, and the 23rd pair are called the sex chromosomes.

Females have two X chromosomes, and males have one X chromosome and one Y chromosome.

Y-DNA is passed from father to sons, and contains information about the direct male line (father,

his father (paternal grand-father), and so forth back in time). Because of this genetic inheritance,

all direct male descendents of a common male ancestor will have (almost) the same Y DNA.
