[[ Agreed. But someone, I guess, is going to bring back the dead end twigs
into the discussion .....
But even those dead end twigs will differ in their tags by 0 or 1 or 2....
snps. --- there's no magic number, just an "expected" number.
Which brings me to the long empty branches of the young trees my wife has
planted in the last few years.
Our over-population of deer in the area do a good job each winter of keeping
those branch segments close enough to the ground clean of any twig
So whenever i look out at those trees in the winter it reminds me of the
human y tree general structure --- from genetic Adam to us --- long branch
segments (between nodes) for most of the base and then ending in more bushy
zones up toward the top where the deer can not reach. KN ]]
