Subject: Re: [DNA] 49 S21 haplotypes on ysearch

This would seem on the surface to make sense Rick - but S21 is bimodal.
There is the classic DYS390 = 23, DYS391 = 11 etc. which is probably a younger clade within the much older and more diverse S21 substrate. In other words there are those who are DYS390 = 24 and DYS391 = 10 who are S21 and we have found some who are WHAM (one from my Shetland Project who is likely of Norse descent) who are S21. Any modals must reflect the reality that this marker, and perhaps others, are bimodal. I am surprised that M222 appears to have one strong modal period - likely reflecting its relative youth or a severe bottleneck.
