A few months ago I pulled the Irish Genome (haplogroup R-S145*) SNPs
from the Galaxy database and put them on a Google Spreadsheet (e-mail me
for the link if you want it), but did not have time to look at them in
depth. The ChrY:5335051 C>G mutation is listed there as well. I also
BLASTed the L459+ sample from the Finch2 server against HuRef (Craig
Venter's sequence), and confirmed that Venter (and thus R-U106) is L459-.
It looks like FTDNA is in for a windfall of L459 orders from the R-L21
clan, not to mention several R-P312+'s from various other sub-clades.
Note that the V95 primers used to find L459 are brand new, and the
R-P312-WTY Project doesn't have recent data to cross-validate.
