Subject: [DNA] Y STR Partial Repeats
Date: Sun, 7 Feb 2010 17:22:07 -0700
Can we trust the SMGF statistics to represent the number of STR partial repeats found among the full 33,000 or so measured haplotypes? Or did they begin recording partial repeats some time later after they started their database?
DYS458 seems to be King of SMGF partial repeats, reaching close to 1 percent of their 33,000 or so indicated repeat values.
Has anyone ever seen a partial repeat be eliminated or created in a father/son transitions study?
