Subject: [DNA] 23andMe Y-SNPs
Date: Wed, 22 Dec 2010 08:10:23 -0500
It's been a while since this plea was made on this list, so pardon it
If you, or someone you know, has tested with 23andMe and is male
PLEASE consider contributing the raw Y-SNP data to Adriano Squecco's
The database is curated by Adriano, with notes on the SNPs kept up to
date by David Reynolds. It is invaluable for active researchers.
This open database is nearing 1,000 submissions, and still new
revelations appear on a regular basis. Even though we have literally
hundreds of R1b entries, just in the past month or so four incredibly
exciting new Y-SNPs within R1b1 have come to light. Two of them (L388
and L389) potentially redefine R1b1b to include not only R-P297 but
also the rest of R1b1 (xV88). The other two (L277 and L405) appear to
define two parallel clades to R-L51.
But those following the project on Facebook will note the report of
new SNPs in E, I, J, N, and other haplogroups in the recent past.
I'm embarrased to say, however, that we still have NO entries from Y
haplogroups M or S. This, in particular, is a real shame.
Anyway, the more results the merrier the research.
