I don't know how you calculate but the haplotypes of the R-M73 group are displaying a variability higher than the haplotypes in the R-V88 group , for those displayed on the R1b1Asterisk project (mentioned earlier).
I never meant comparing R-V88 to R1b (which haplotypes ?).
The comparison I suggested is :
R-V88 versus R-P312
R-M73 versus R-P312 (R-P312 taken here as a known group to compare to)
I would like to know WHO is finding a higher variance for R-V88 than for R-M73 ; that's my point.
PS : why the [Bulk mention in the subject when I received the message ?
