Lawrence,

In the R1b project, of over 72 results for the new 30 markers, only 2
exactly match the modal for R1b. That is, more than 97% have mutations in
the 30 new markers, some have 6 or more. This indicates the new markers in
R1b at least are likely to "show something" in more than 97% of cases.

John.

You are assuming that the new markers show anything at all. Only one member
of the Polish project, an I1b1-Dinar, has received the 67-marker upgrade he
ordered. All 30 of the extra markers exactly matched Ken's modal. No, that
is not a coincidence! If you know how widely varying I1b1-Dinar is (in the
first 37 markers) across eastern and southern Europe, you will realize that
30 *unvarying* markers are absolutely, totally useless.

It will be interesting to see which haplogroups find any significant use to
the new markers.
