I noticed the same thing about DYS437 labeled as DYS457 -- I was
surprised such an error could get through!

And then, yes, I started to see all those mislabeled haplotypes (wrong
SNPs)! Yeesh! This is what they are able to do with such advanced,
professional labs and staff? If you're going to publish a paper on
such a high-profile topic, I would think you'd want to re-test your SNPs
until they came out right.

More on that later -- it's too late for tonight. All that WTY talk took
up the time! ;-)
