ANATOLE: There is at least one person, AP (initials), which does not have either V166 or V168 (and not V50). Besides, he has an astronomically distant STRs. For example, DYS438 are typically 10, 11, sometimes 8. He has 16 (!!). He also has DYS425=9 (!!), not 12, as the great majority of people. Our esimates show that his the most recent common ancestor with other people lived ~ 260,000 years ago. Well, this might be reconsidered to 200,000 ybp. Or maybe earlier that 260,000.
LINDSEY: I'm surprised no one has asked--what is known of this person's ancestry and where did his most distant ancestor live? He must have male relatives, too; furthermore, if there is a single lineage which does not descend from Alpha-haplogroup, then there are probably others somewhere in the world. Why isn't more being said about this?
