- John,Your network chart is interesting but I have a few questions about the interpretation. First, the general situation. It is my understanding that the lines represent mutations, possibly more than one. The length of the lines are proportional to the weighted number of mutations. A mutation at one of the "fast" markers should produce a short line and a mutation at a "slow" marker a long line. The angle of the lines is arbitrary and unimportant. Are these assumptions correct? If so, it should be possible to count the mutations.I am puzzled that two of the green circles are only one step away from the R1bMod. Also the Beatty circle is only 4 steps away from R1bMod, which is surprisingly small. Did the CDY markers get included? I didn't find the Burns circle. Is it easy for you to make available the identity of the numbered haplotypes?--Earl----- Original Message -----From: John S WaldenSent: Sunday, August 31, 2008 9:40 AMSubject: Re: [Beatty_Byrnes_DNA] New file uploaded to Beatty_Byrnes_DNAI have updated the network chart for Earl's set of data and placed it in the files so that
it shows up next to the xls file.
I made a few changes
I coded the names so I could color code the nodes.
Green [names 1000 to 1050] are all tested ccgg
Yellow is unknown
McHale is probably ccgg
I added in the modal for Bearty, Burns McCain and Doty.
R1b Modal is blue
S116 tested as cccg and the one slose cccg sample are rose colored
I guess that we should not be surprised that ccgg are on all sides of R1b modal
because this is a very limited, highly selected, set of R1b haplotypes.
It is somewhat reassuring that both S116 and tested cccg samples are at the end of a line
and do not have a ccgg on both sides.
But logic tells me that R1b modal is oldest then came S116 then our ccgg group
so in a perfect world S116 would be between R1b modal and our ccgg cluster.
Again this is probably due to our selection process.
BigY Matrix Update 2 has included/added the 9 recent Beatty Clan Z16433 matches in the Z255 File giving a total of 1 matches so far with a possibility of more to come in the current testing batch at YSEQ.
