Subject: [DNA] R1a SNP testers wanted
Date: Sat, 15 Aug 2009 15:51:32 -0500
I'm looking for some people to test the new R1a SNPs discovered in me.
We just need a few people to find where these are on the tree.
Especially wanted are
1) people from Norway or Iceland who are R1a1, 459a,b = 9,10, and YCAIIa,b = 19,21
2) people from Norway or Iceland who are R1a1, 459a,b = 9,10, and YCAIIa,b = 19,23
3) people from England or continental Europe who are R1a1, 459a,b = 9,10, and YCAIIa,b = 19,23
4) typical R1a1 Russians or Poles who are YCAIIa,b = 19,23
also, though less urgent to the Clan Donald, R1a1 people from Iran, Iraq, or Pakistan.
There are three SNPs to test. If necessary I can pay for a couple of tests
if the person can't afford it and is ideal.
If you are interested, let me know by email.
We can't be certain that anything of real interest will turn up, but with
three SNPs it's quite possible, and is really the only hope for European R1a.
