Dear Terry,
You might want to look at this message for a listing of markers in
order of their mutation rates:
83. There was also a thread on this topic beginning on March 31, 2009 and
subsequent days that you might want to review for additional background. To

Does anyone have a systematic approach to which markers would be slow and
which fast? My inclination would be to include only these markers as "fast"
from the first 67: 464, 724 (CDY), 570 and 557. (If we used all of the
FTDNA "red markers", we'd also include 385, 439, 458, 449, 456, 576 and some
more from 38-67)

Best Regards,
Terry Barton
