    Somalis and T-Y16897

    Somalis have a comparatively high frequency of haplogroup T to the rest of the world, but it is mostly only T-Y16897 (not very diverse).

    Possibly even only T-Y45591 (TMRCA 2900 ybp)?? So clearly not the place of origin.

    All belongs to Y45591 except any eventual penetration of surrounding populations that carried another extremely distant T branch (not found any example of this possibility yet)

    This possibility of a Horn of Africa origin never was proposed by any serious individual. Frequency is not equal to origin.

    Do you know if Southeast African (Kenya, Tanzania etc) T carriers are under the same general subclade (T-Y16897) as Somali ones? Excluding recent admixed populations like the Lemba, Swahili, or Comorians.

    There is an ancient Cushitic genetic substratum all across Southeast Africa. Hence, the question. Thank in advance.
