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
Mutations and mutation rates
SNP's and haplogroups
Primer pairs and multiplexes
Atlantic modal haplotype (AMH)
