In human genetics, Haplogroup CR (M168, M294) is a Y-chromosome haplogroup.

Haplogroup CR contains the M168 change, which is present in all Y-chromosome haplogroups except A and B and is therefore the common ancestral type of all early migration out of Africa as per the Single origin hypothesis. The mutation is believed to have occurred 31 to 55 thousand years before present within North East Africa.[1]
