Re: R1b-P312 Project Update - updating subgroupings and checking for new results
- Please review the new project subgroupings and please post errors and questions on this thread. They are still in a rough form, other than I think we've made a lot of progress on DF19 and L238 through the help of our other project administrators.
I tried to keep some of Henry's old groupings while streamlining the U152, L21 and DF27 subgroupings. However, I'm still a bit confused on some of Henry's granularity. I didn't want to do away with until I understood it. For instance, he had two subgroupings for P312+ people with recommendations to test for DF27 specifically. I kept those and have them labeled as
Ab1. P312+ DF27? (R1b-P312) (Please order DF27)
Ab2. P312+ DF27? (R1b-P312) (Please order DF27)
However, I don't know why they are both needed rather than being combined. Does anyone know?

I am trying to simplify and streamline some of the subgroupings to emphasize actual SNP results and make the project more manageable and more focused. I don't know how Henry was doing it, to be honest. P312's phylogenetic tree is large and complex.
