Subject: RE: [DNA] Designing a New Phylogenetic Tree Based on New Findings

Sure, thats possible Bill. There is so much on the go right now that it would probably be best to wait a bit until we see where S23 and S24 fit, as well as the P78 and P95 SNPs that we need to test as well as see what the new Sanghamitra paper (Jim knows this fellow and is due to publish a paper with him) has to offer. I would say that a reasonable approach would be to wait for about 6 months then integrate whatever findings have emerged since then. However until then we could have a "fluid" phylo chart with the latest findings and a very tentative location for each of the new SNPs that are floating around. I would need to work with someone who is good a creating diagrams (not one of my fortes) and I could upload our work to ISOGG and the EA site and with ISOGG backing call it the "Provisional ISOGG Phylogenetic Chart". Clearly I must negotiate with them but some are within the sound of my voice and so I would appreciate their feedback as to what is viable. I think tha!
could ultimately be a win win situation. The U of A talks about a new chart but talk is cheap and it could not inrporate the new EA findings so there are good reasons why genetic genealogists need to do this and use the template created to expand and contract as dictated by the surge in new data.
Hope we can address this issue to everyone's satisfaction.
