The most interesting thing about this haplotype is, that this is the
first 15.3 value that I have ever observed in R1b.
15.3 is frequently found in E3b. E3b males have 4 g-types. This one is
also a g-type, but the other 3 are c-types.
This would give some kind of "link" between R1b and E3b.
1.) R1b is related to E3b
2.) We have some strange recombination (??????)

We have changed the DYS461 nomenclature on Aug. 1st to match all the
other databases and the new ISFG guidelines
(because the ISFG has changed the rules for DYS461, too).
No conversion is necessary.
If old customers are confused, they can ask me for the right value.
