The purpose of this project is to document the paternal lineage of all people with the genetic marker R-M17, R-M512 or R-M198 This haplogroup is called R-M17, R-M512 and R-M198. This marker defines the Y DNA Haplogroup currently designated R1a1a. The haplogroup name R-M512 is now preferred by ISOGG while R-M198 is the preferred name of on the YFull Tree. This haplogroup formed 14400 ybp and TMRCA was 8500 ybp.

The full path on the current Y Tree is:

R1a > R-M459 > R-M198/R-M512/R-M17
