On Fri, 5 Feb 2010 12:01:05 -0500, Bill complains:

Bill, there's no problem with having a transversion at np 516, and I never indicated a problem. I was merely indicating that the stretch of DNA presented the same problem as the other 38 sequences (one with a CACA insertion sandwiched between the two C's that follow the micro-STR). Mannis replied 19 minutes before I got your email (of which you also received from him), and Ian indicated even earlier that this sequence was on his list (I didn't know this when I discovered it this morning and emailed you all).

Anyways, I was thanking Mannis for the part of the reply that I put in quotes: "PLUS 524insCACA; the latter of course should have been 524insACAC," not for pointing out the transversion before you did so.

For someone who gets upset over nothing, you should rather be directing your disappointment with Thomas for misrepresenting and covering up the issue of erroneous mutation lists and FASTA sequences. As everyone should know by now, differences in nomenclature is not the issue we've been discussing.
