Perhaps the NGS project will save indigenous samples for later
deep-level SNP testing. Recently mutated STRS are only good back to about
They only way that Spencer Wells et al are going to unravel the
ancient thread of genetic history is to perform deep level
SNP testing..... He knows full well that STRS will only go
back so far in time.
Let us hope that the NGS project does deep level SNP testing
and then such a statistical predictive SNP algorithm would
not be needed.
And make some major breakthrus on maternal mtDNA haplagroup "sub-clades"
because these also need to be defined...
