To date, there is little evidence supporting a role of Y chromosome genetic variation in relation to human complex traits. This review summarises inherent complexities specific to the Y chromosome related to its structure, function and population history that make the human Y chromosome a complex locus, different from all other human chromosomes. We propose that this complexity needs to be taken into account in the design and interpretation of genetic epidemiological studies involving chromosome Y. In particular, we discuss evidence and propose novel ideas about the consideration of haplogroups in genetic association studies of the human Y chromosome and complex traits. View this paper
