The R should be the heteroplasmic code for combination of A and G, while M
is for A and C. The complete list of the IUPAC codes is here:
I don't think I knew Argus was using these codes. RG uses them, FTDNA hasn't
- except there was a recent report of them e-mailing someone to tell them
they had the combination C/T at one position. All this might change when you
get the Argus final report. Please let us know then.
