1. [DNA] PubMed abstract: Y haplogroup R1a1 in India [1]
J Hum Genet. 2009 Jan;54(1):47-55. Epub 2009 Jan 9. The Indian origin of paternal haplogroup R1a1* substantiates the autochthonous origin of Brahmins and the caste system. Sharma S, Rai E, Sharma P, Jena M, Singh S, Darvishi K, Bhat AK, Bhanwer AJ, Tiwari PK, Bamezai RN. National Centre of Applied Human Genetics, School of Life Sciences, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, India.

3. Re: [DNA] Hello Mr. Krahn [1]
Hi Thomas, Thanks for your helpful explanation about L222.2. Technically it was excellent, but unavoidably it may add to the controversy about the use of this marker to divide L147+, which as admin of the J haplogroup project, I hear about often. Sometimes the L222.2 results may not be what was expected according to traditional genealogies. In genetic genealogy we are used to dealing with the repercussions of this conflict when the SNPs are reliable, but as you can imagine it can become more di

7. Re: [DNA] Family Finder Info [1]
Well, the biggest difference will be in the comparative data base. My experience at 23andMe other than with our group of avid genealogists, is that the rest of the people who tested specifically for health traits don't answer or if they do, they're generally not knowledgeable or interested in their genealogy. I've become very discouraged attempting to contact matches there. At FTDNA, the people who test are genealogists, or recruited by genealogists, and they are interested in the same thing we are. As
8. Re: [DNA] GENEALOGY-DNA Digest, Vol 5, Issue 105 [1]
Doctor Turner, Thank You for clarifying a number of issues. This is a side issue. As to the Armed Services, my understanding(possibly incorrect) is that the DNA samples are also used in cases where the UCMJ has been violated. This includes establishing paternity in case of unanticipated pregnancies amongst service members. To me the issue is that effective individual customized drug prescription, among other things, can't happen with out DNA testing. We see the very primitive start of this already at 23

13. [DNA] Y STR Partial Repeats [1]
I've mentioned that the distinguishing partial repeat in our Acree project (all tested by the Sorenson lab) is 13.2 at DYS385b. SMGF, in providing Marker Details within its Y-Chromosome data base, currently reports that the 13.2 value at DYS385b has been observed 29 times within 66,106 samples tested, for a frequency of 0.00044. My understanding is that partial repeats are considered to be remarkably stable. Our project, which ties 19 of our participants to a particular early-18th-century Acree progenitor,

This issue came up recently in Texas. The decision was made by the state government to destroy all blood samples not obtained with the parents' express written consent since the collection was started in 1999. Going forward, all parents of children born in Texas now have the chance to "opt out" on the storage of their infant's blood sample; otherwise the sample will go to a state-maintained medical database, to be made available for future medical research. Essentially, the donated samples become a medic

Please notice that it was not "the reviewer", but "a reviewer". I hoped you know those nuances in English language better. Regarding your desire to calculate and speculate who it (he or she) might be, you might consider to leave it for yourself. Regards, Anatole Klyosov B
17. Re: [DNA] Variance Assessment of R:U106 DYS425Null Cluster [1]
It's been done over and over already. But as a general rule, it is quite easy to throw out crackpot theories then stand by and wait for others to prove you wrong. It is also a common rhetorical technique, and some of us have seen it enough that we've tired of taking the bait.

Anders wrote: > So could these lab errors contribute to a overestimated mutation > rate versus Zhiv rates? The value I gave was for errors that were apparently detected and corrected within a period of slightly under two years. I have no obvious way of extrapolating that to a count of undetected errors, and so the only thing I can logically do is call that 1/800 figure the error rate itself. Dividing by 67 to get the average per-marker rate of 1.8e-5 shows that this is negigible compared to the measured
20. Re: [DNA] Call to participants in ALL geographic andhaplogroupprojects: fill in your ancestry [1]
Getting back to 1830 isn't all that bad. I have a member who's adopted and doesn't know his line beyond the name of his biological father. I consider him to have fulfilled the requirement of supplying his line to the project, to the extent that he knew it. In the end, once he makes a match, the other members will likely have helped him more than he has helped them, but so be it. The important thing is that everyone in the project supply their line as far back as they can -- and that we continue to work
21. Re: [DNA] Variance Assessment wrt back and parallel mutations [1]
Anatole, I understand very well that to work out actual placement of haplotypes in a family tree requires conventional genealogy. In attempting to do that, I discovered that parallel mutations were surprisingly common. You told me that they were so rare as to be negligible in the time frame that surname projects are concerned about. I asked you to show me. You provided a tree. One third of the mutations in the first and second branches you found were parallel mutations. I showed you this explicitly by labe

[[ TMRCA is estimated for clades by average variance or GD from an assumed founding haplotype. Coalescence or Divergence age estimate of a clade is made from the average tmrca of the N(N-1)/2 pairs of haplotypes of the sample collection. The latter will be less than the former. I am sorry if the difference of those two entities, conceptually
