Haplogroup M175


These are genetically mixed early Siberians coming from the central Asian steppe hunter lineage delineated by marker M45.

Several ancient Siberians migrated north and east to modern China – however the majority followed the steppes eastward through southern Siberia.  About 80% of all people living east of the central Asian mountains carry this marker M175

About 35,000 years ago these migrants reached the east and were isolated by the mountains and ice sheet from the Ice Age.  M175 is almost uniquely found only in the East Asia region as a result of this.
