What does the paternal haplogroup calculation consist of?

Our calculation consists of extracting genetic information from the Y chromosome of our users. This genetic information then passes strict quality controls that allow us to obtain more accurate results. Once this filtered information is obtained, we calculate your paternal haplogroup by means of an algorithm. This calculation consists of observing similarities between different markers of the Y chromosome of our users and different databases that collect the different existing paternal haplogroups.
