Subject: Re: [DNA] Haplogroup N1 versus A2 versus D3

I have read in several journals that there are haplogroups A2-A5. For example, refer to "The Emerging Limbs and Twigs of the East Asian mtDNA Tree" here:
It is my understanding that A2 is characterized by 16111T, 16223T, 16290T, 16319A, 16362C, 16390A, all of which I have and which is why I have been saying that I'm probably "A2" instead of saying that I'm probably "A."
But, again, I'm a newbie about all this and could easily be wrong....
