Current Y chromosome research is limited in the poor resolution of Y chromosome phylogenetic tree. Entirely sequenced Y chromosomes in numerous human individuals have only recently become available by the advent of next-generation sequencing technology. The 1000 Genomes Project has sequenced Y chromosomes from more than 1000 males. Here, we analyzed 1000 Genomes Project Y chromosome data of 1269 individuals and discovered about 25,000 phylogenetic relevant SNPs. Those new markers are useful in the phylogeny of Y chromosome and will lead to an increased phylogenetic resolution for many Y chromosome studies.
