In human population genetics, haplogroups define the major lineages of direct paternal (male) lines back to a shared common ancestor in Africa. Haplogroup Q-L54 is a subclade of Y-DNA haplogroup Q-L53. Q-L54 is defined by the presence of the L54 Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP).
Q-L54 has descendants across Western and Central Europe, the North and East of Asia, and the Americas. It includes two of the major pre-Columbian paternal lineages in the Americas: Q-M3 and Q-Z780. Its descendant lines also include the Central Asian Q-L330 lineage.
Q-L54 is currently defined by the L54 SNP alone.
