  • Updates to the McDonald TMRCA mutation rates?

    The McDonald TMRCA calculator has mutation rates that were (apparently) last updated over six years ago. Is anyone aware of updates to these values?

      Cool... The basic data is here, mean for 110 STRs is 0.00212, which is rather close to McDonald's "SMGF STR set", but far lower than other values. That is, the current McDonald calculator may overstate closeness in many cases. TiP may use individual values from this paper to get a much better estimate, but this only works when comparing results within FTDNA.
