    Did haplogroup R1b originate in or near Tajikistan?

    It seems to me that the most likely place of origin of haplogroup R1b is in the area of Tajikistan.
    The Tajikistan/Krygyzstan area is central to all the interesting early remains of R, R1, and R2. From there they radiated in all directions.

    R1b* is now found in the nearby area of southeastern Kazakhstan (and further west in Iran). And today's distribution of R1b-KH155 is centrally found in Tajikistan (plus Bhutan and Xinjiang to the east; and Turkey and Bahrain to the west).

    It would not surprise me if the parent haplogroup K also originated in this area (Tajikistan or adjacent western China).
