View Full Version : On the Armenian R-L23

I noticed that the pair (DYS462=10, DYS495=15) occurs in almost 20% of the R-L23 members in the ht35 project. Of which 80% is self-identified as Armenian or Turkish. Most of the rest is either unknown (so this number can go up) or belonging to a neighborhood countries (Georgia, Iran). So with a high confidence level a person with (DYS462=10, DYS495=15) belongs to that region. As in these cases, there is one exception: a Swedish guy (kit 351312). Additionally, those with (DYS462=11, DYS495=15) pair are all from the UK.

I forget to add that for this particular Armenian (DYS462=10, DYS495=15) pair, a new sub-cluster is very probable.
