(3) To ignore or not to ignore them.

[[ignore them (DYS464) for purposes of counting GD; but that does not mean
one can not use DYS464 to recognize haplotype similarities to clusters and
clades...... They can play a very useful part in this latter task.


When you ignore DYS464 for purposes of evaluating GD or/and variance, you of
course should eliminate DYS464 from the sum of mutation rates parameter as
well. KN ]]
