One of the reasons I like the Di Giacomo paper is that they *do* make these
distinctions of diversity. And their calculations yield close comparisons with
ASD & Batwing, detecting the same fluctuations (I know - I'm repeating
myself). And they derive rates for subpopulations of haplogroup "J" that are much
closer to the f/s rates than the PU/LZ "1/3rd" rate.

I'd like to see them apply their methods to "I1", "R1", etc.

Where can I find the lists of haplotypes found by region which I could
subject to ASD or variance analysis? The journal papers are notoriously
confusing diversity generated by multiple subgroups within the larger group,
and diversity or variance produced by mutation and hence time. Only the
latter is indicative of age. I'd like to see the evidence for myself
rather than hear about the picture after it has become conventional wisdom.
Phylogenetic trees of A begetting B begetting C and D, etc. don't by
themselves give us the time spans of the various branches.
