I recently had my cheek cells tested for the genographic project. My Y chromosome apparently carries marker M175 which puts me in Haplogroup O. I guess I share this marker with most men in China (my dad is from the Philippines). The thing that boggles my mind is that this marker (or any of the markers they find) trace back to one particular guy.

I have no intention of ever getting a tattoo, but I suppose if there was a good visual representation of the marker I would be good with that.
