  • 25 generation variation

    What variations in Y chromosome might be expected for direct male line descendants over 25 generations?
    Thanks for advice.

    Variation

    Yes, that would be vary interesting to know. Are their at mutation rate probability chart for each marker? I've heard stated, it is supposed that some markers are more likely to mutate than others and when they do happen, its supposed to be random.

    As these measurements are very new, I don't think any of the researchers has collected enough data that they will stick out their neck to estimate mutation rates. Those that have initially seem to have been way off in their guesses. Mutations don't seem to be happening nearly as frequently as was supposed.
