OK, I'm willing to consider that the Y SNP rate is higher than for the entire genome. Do you have a source for this information other than this list's archives?


P.S. I will check next week with Dr. Vishy Iyer at UT-Austin (after break), who is the top guy for human genetics on that campus, concerning whether the SNP mutation rate quoted in Hartwell is correct and whether it applies to the genome in its entirety or to a single SNP.
