Description

In human genetics, the Atlantic Modal Haplotype (AMH) is a Y-chromosome haplotype within the R1b haplogroup.

The AMH is the most frequently occurring haplotype amongst human males in Atlantic Europe. It is characterised by the following marker alleles:

  • DYS388 12
  • DYS390 24
  • DYS391 11
  • DYS392 13
  • DYS393 13
  • DYS394 14 (also known as DYS19)

One mutation in either direction, would be AMH 1.15+. The AMH 1.15 set of haplotypes is also referred to as the Atlantic Modal Cluster or AMC. Often 1.15+ would be a haplogroup 1 (H1), but not always.
