Subject: [DNA] DYS464X test

Doe anyone have any experience of interpreting DYS464X results? I have two
men in my project whose alleles at DYS 464 are:

15 15 18 18
15 15 17 18

The DYS464X now gives us:

15c 15c 18c 18g
15c 15c 17g 18c

Can we deduce anything particular from these results?

Are the two 18cs equivalent or have there been two separate mutations
(18c/17g and 18g/18c)?

Is there likely to be any benefit in ordering further DYS464X tests? We are
investigating a tree where the common ancestor lived over 800 years ago.
