Well, you may get your wish and our wish. It seems the total y covered only
25 million positions of the y, instead of all of it when chalking up those
2650 differences between an I donor and a R/G donor HUGO.
If we assume the split between I and R/G on average occured about 36,000
years ago I get an average mutation rate of
4 / 100 million. That's twice what I have been assuming for walk the y
We could be pleasantly surprised.
