Subject: [DNA] Kittler Modalities Added
Date: Sat, 19 Jan 2008 13:43:28 -0700
For clades of y haplogroup I, my FoundersHap.xls file at http://knordtvedt.home.bresnan.net has been updated to show Kittler order modalities for DYS385 for clades which seem to have a clear order. Such Kittler modalities are shown in pink. For other clades the trend is not yet clear or there is genuine mixed Kittler orders within the clade. I will update this periodically as people present their Kittler results to me for addition to my research database.
DYS385 modalities not shown in pink are in the low / high order which is the default or conventional standard for testing company reporting. No Kittler order is implied.
I believe this is an inexpensive and informative test which more folks in y haplogroup I should have measured from FTDNA advanced tests. Of course, if you have DYS385 repeats which are equal the test has no value.
