Unfortunately this list is the cutting edge of new information and interpretation and academic publications will likely drag behind by several years.  It will probably be years before academia takes on board all the new SNP info routinely discussed here.  For example, the L21 SNP that effectively disproved the Irish-Iberia myth in any substantial form has only been tested for a few months.

In the hope of bringing myself more up-to-date with current information, are
there any available papers published on last year's  R1b=ice age
refugia=hunter gatherer genes=basques=Celts false correlation?
