In a conversation between a couple of us and Dr. Hammer at the last
Houston FTDNA conference, I explicitly asked Dr. Hammer if all the new SNPs
appearing on his updated Y-Haplogroup tree would be given rs numbers. I
certainly interpreted his response as a definite "yes". The poster version
of the FTDNA 2008 Y Haplogroup tree (as shown at the Houston conference) has
a huge number of SNPs that I don't believe have rs numbers. Among these are
the SNPs of the P-series, all from Hammer's own group. The new tree contains
most of the P-series SNPs from P1 to P297. I have rs numbers for only nine
of these! It would seem a lot of effort is required to get the information
submitted and to be assigned rs numbers. While many of Underhill's M-series
SNPs have rs numbers, there must be at least fifty appearing in the tree
that have no rs numbers. (M1 through M467 appear in the new FTDNA tree
and/or the ISOGG 2007 tree).
