Subject: [DNA] Q Y chromosome
Date: Wed, 05 Nov 2003 15:15:44 -0800

Q3 Y chromosome was just found in a child my Icelandic friend adopted from a
Romanian orphanage several years ago, supposedly from a Romani/Gypsi man and
a Ukrainian-Romanian mom. Only that Q3 is supposed to be native to the
Amazon/Native American area. The child is going back to Rekyavik, Iceland
with his parents. So in generations, Iceland will have lots of Q3 Y
chromosomes assuming he marries and settles there as an adult. So in the
future, every type of Y chromosome and mtDNA will be present all over the
world and not just in one area any more. The world needs more of this
diversity for the sake of health included.
