News for G2a4 persons

 I am sorry to report that your group was not involved in the many news events of the past year 

You actually have a new designation. The old G2a4 subgroup was moved, and you were renamed.  

I have divided your subgroup into two categories:
(1) those with the DYS481 mutation
(2) those only predicted to have the DYS481 mutation based on the similarity of your marker values to those who are confirmed

It would be immensely helpful if the men just predicted to have a value less than 18 at marker DYS481 would order the DYS481 marker.  It only costs $7.20 -- what a bargain!  DYS481 can also be obtained by an upgrade to 67 markers, but this is much more expensive.

We also need someone within your subgroup to test for the new L223 SNP (G2a2).  We do not know if your subgroup is part of L223 or you are outside this group.  We had to move a number of men underneath L223 when it was found that they were a branch of L223.

As mentioned in the general news section, if you are willing to better define your grouping, I will be glad to give individual recommendations and help. rayhbanks@cox.net.
