How about the Supplemental Data files? Are they available separately?

It's nice to finally see some DNA studies which include some non-R1bs. :>)

Dear All,

A PDF of the paper is available at

and the HTML version is at

It looks like Desmond Tutu was one of the 5 men whose genome was sequenced.
The Y haplogroups of the people tested are A2, A3b1, B2b, E1b1b1, and
E1b1a8a. I suspect that a trickle of whole genomes will soon become a
flood. As far as I know there are now 14 whole genomes that have been
completed. My recollection of them and their Y haplogroups is as follows:

Human Genome Project, R1b (R-U106)(plus some G)
Craig Ventor, R1b (R-L46)
James Watson, R1b (R-U106)
haplogroup I male, I
Yoruba male, E1b1
Han Chinese male, O
Korean person, Female?
Korean male, O
Saqqaq male, Q
Desmond Tutu, E1b1a8a
!Gubi, B2b
G/aq'o, A3b1
D#kgao, A2
!Ai, E1b1b1
