Hi David!

As for this "puzzle". I'm more inclined to believe that there was a problem
with gel quality, dna concentration or any other kind of error (which is
more likely to happen to rflp test) rather than to believe in "multiple
homoplasy". At most, a parellel coding-region mutation occured.

It still can be U until 12308 (or its equivalent) is checked.

(only obtain a sense of probablity). We have designed subclade tests for
the major and not so major mtDNA groupings. More on this later - but mtDNA
help is definitely on the way.
