    L3x2b - Lack of detection due to armed conflicts?

    If you happen to come across my maternal haplogroup, please share -- I'd greatly appreciate it!

    I've only been able to find 8 instances of L3x2b in the past two and half years.


    L3x2b - Point Distribution Map (July, 2017)


    Shown on Map:
    Algeria
    North Gaza (الشمالخة - غزة)
    Sudan - Darfur (Masalit) *identified in a research paper as L3x2; could be either the basal clade, L3x2b/a or an unidentified subclade*
    Uganda - West Nile Region

    Not shown on Map:
    Spain - Galacia
    Spain - Asturias
    Trinidad and Tobago
    USA (African-American)



    I don't know if there's any merit to this but I thought I'd plot a centroid region to the distribution map which at the moment seems to fall within N/Western Sudan, Southern Libya and N/Eastern Chad -- not exactly the most peaceful regions in recent decades.

    Apart from Africa being generally under-surveyed, I wonder if armed conflicts in the afmd "centroid" region might also be a major factor for L3x2b's lack of detection. It's complete absence in genetic research papers for the region (Sudanese/Ugandan/Chadian etc) makes me wonder if it'll one day be detected at low to moderate levels in an oasis within the proposed centroid region.

    That haplogroup is often associated with both Nilotes and Mbuti (East) Pygmies. It's rather old, so you most likely belong to the Nilote branch.
