View Full Version : SNP Age Calculation?

03-15-2016, 12:51 PM
I've googled some, but I haven't found a clear how-to for calculating estimates for haplogroup divergence. I would imagine one uses established rates and extends from accepted parent haplogroup age, etc. I don't know whether there are factors, e.g., nucleotide sequences, that will suggest faster/slower rates of mutation, or if they're all very regular.
A starting point for my SNP, R-ZP148, would be some time after 4300 YBP, which is a proposed origin for both DF23 and the parallel R-Z2961 http://www.yfull.com/tree/R-DF23/
