Dear Dennis

DYS385 a and b is a duplicated segment so when you test it you get two
values. These have traditionally been listed lowest first. The new
Kittler test (see description and links on my R1b page at ) allows you to distinguish
each of the alleles and this allows identification of the order of the
STR values. R1b individuals are normally hi then lo.

Hi John,

Still very much in the learning mode ...
Could you explain "hi-lo" and "lo-hi" in reference to R1b?
