It may be the language barrier but I'm not the only one having trouble
understanding your concepts, particularly when the terminology and methods
you use depart from what we've become accustomed to read in population
genetics studies. I have a particular interest in haplogroup E and would
like that readers of this email list grasp more clearly everything about
And to be honest, you haven't really explained how you work with haplotype
trees or how you "segregate" subclades on a tree. I know, you will
recommend again that we read your paper. But, if my comments seem to vague,
maybe you too should delve into the details and specifics of the "de
rigueur" authors of population genetics, so we can exchange common concepts.
