Thomas may have better information but yes we have 2 probable members of
the Scots cluster and both are cccg.
We have 2 Irish cluster R1bs with cccg and one with all c's either cc or
Even if the 464x is "generic" they are still very useful for sorting out
close matches. It will be especially interesting if some rough rules of
thumb can predict the allele associated with g in R1b.

Results are back from DNA-F for my DYS 464x testing - 15c, 15c, 17g,
18c. (Thanks, Thomas, that was fast!!) This is the modal for R1b. I
believe that to date we have not found any unusual events (nulls,
recLOH events, etc. ) that distinguish the Scots cluster from the R1b
modal (other than the number of repeats at certain alleles which
define the cluster). It seems that the Irish modal & the Scots modal
remain pretty generic at present. Does anyone else have any comments
on this? Pat
