Subject: Re: [DNA] mutation rate estimations?

I was not there but this message was sent to the list:
In a message dated 11/1/2004 7:35:44 PM Central Standard Time,
The more precise mutation rates which I noted were:
.00399 for 1-12 (1st panel)
.00481 for 12-25 (2nd panel)
.00748 for 26-37 (3rd panel)
I believe I saw .0058 for all 37 markers. Is that correct?
