Haplogroups of Y-chromosomes of eight tribes of Afghanistan

According to article "Ethnic groups of Afghanistan share a Y-chromosome heritage structured by historical events", the paternal Y-chromosomes of 8 tribes of Afghanistan are introduced. These 8 tribes are Arabs (Arabs), Balochs (Baluchis), Khazars (Khazarians), Norestans, Uzbeks (Uzbeks), Pashtuns (Pashtuns), Tajiks (Tajiks), Turkmens (Turkmens).

Zara) about 15%, Uzbeks (Uzbeks) about 10%.

Pashtun (Pashtun) testers 49 people, largest male type is R1a (51.02%), second largest type is Q (18.36%), third is L (12.24%), and rest are smaller , for G (6.12%), H (4.08%), L (2.04%), C (2.04%), J2s (2.04%), R2a (2.04%) and etc., where R1a is sign type of Iranian language family. The share of Q, reaching 18%, is unexpected.

Tajik (Tajik) is testing 56 people, largest male type is R1a (30.36%), which is a cult type of Iranian-speaking people, second largest type is J2 (16.06%), this type is in Syria, Turkey and other places have a higher proportion, and third largest type is L (8.93%) and O (8.93%), L is a typical type with a high incidence in northern India, and also largest Baloch type (66, 66%). %)), a strikingly high proportion of type O (8.93%), highest in Afghanistan, of unclear origin.

Hazara (Hazara) testers are 60 people, largest type is C (33.33%), followed by J2 (26.66%), third place is occupied by Q (6.66%) and R1a (6, 66%). in our Chinese is 1.66%. The Haraza people have many types that are very rare in Afghanistan, such as B (5.00%), which is relatively rare outside of Africa, such as M1 (1.66%).

Uzbek (Uzbek) testers 17 people, largest type is C (41.17%), followed by R1a (23.52%), followed by R1b ​​(11.76%), no type O, this structure is a typical Turkic paternal line is also very consistent with ancient Turkic paternal line.
