Diagnostic Markers in Haplogroup G

We have a number of participants, some recently joined, that are in y-DNA haplogroup G or G2. I encourage these folks to check out an article by Phillip G. Goff and T. Whit Athey entitled "Diagnostic Y-STR Markers in Haplogroup G".

They found that four uncommonly tested markers (DYS425, DYS446, DYS452, and DYF399S1) can be successfully used to diagnose haplogroup G or its subgroups.

These are all available from Family Tree DNA as advanced tests, though DYS425 is part of the DYF371 test and DYF399S1 is part of the DYF399X test
