  • Haplogroup L3f

    Hi, I am recently new to familytreedna. I have a few questions, but I am not sure if this the right place to ask them. But I am willing to give it a try in hopes of getting more knowledgeable information.

    First off, does anyone know what duplicate DNA is being used to test against all the DNA samples that are received? How is it determined that the substitution (in my case) is do the random repeats "thought" to exist in a particular ethnic background? How can it be determined that these substitutions, deletions,or insertions are not a result of poor genes, enviroment, random selection, etc....

    The last question currently on my mind, relates to the six mutations (whatever that means, cause I am not a mutant. Not that would be a bad thing, any way). The first three mutations have a strong relationship to L3f, M7a, and W. What does this mean?

    By the way, the results below were obtained from another site, where I only had my HVR-1 sequenced. I am waiting to receive my kit from familytreedna.

    Thanks

        the first number is matches count in a sample, the second one is the sample size
