In human geneticsWp globe tiny.gif, Haplogroup B (M60) is a Y-chromosomeWp globe tiny.gif haplogroupWp globe tiny.gif.

Haplogroup B (Y-DNA) was the ancestral haplogroup of modern PygmiesWp globe tiny.gif.

Haplogroup B is localized to sub-Saharan AfricaWp globe tiny.gif, especially to tropical forests of West-Central Africa. After Y-haplogroup A, it is the second oldest and one of the most diverse human Y-haplogroups. It was the ancestral haplogroup of modern PygmiesWp globe tiny.gif like e.g. the BakaWp globe tiny.gif and MbutiWp globe tiny.gif, but also HadzabeWp globe tiny.gif from Tanzania, who are often mistakenly considered as a remnant of Khoisan people in East Africa.
