I am a relatively new lister but I have found the DNA Heritage site very
valuable for its Tutorial and Masterclass topics.
The Tutorial is basic "what is DNA" stuff. Under the Masterclass header are
these links:
  Mutations and mutation rates  
  SNP's and haplogroups  
  Primer pairs and multiplexes  
  Atlantic modal haplotype (AMH)
