  • Help needed with palindromes

    I understand how palindromic markers work, but I have a question about their mutations in particular families. By comparing myself to others in the J project and ysearch, I've discovered that all of the markers that uniquely set me apart from similar J1s (388=16, YCAii = 22/22) occur in the palindromic markers including 385, 459, 464,395s1, and 413; YCAii is the only one that I don't differ on from many people, and I have a few matches on CDY. My only 12/12 match shares my 385b value, but differs with me on 459 - he has only 25 markers to compare. I do have differences with other people on non-palindromic markers, but my differences on those are shared by at least a few other people. Does this seem unusual? Has anyone heard of this? I've read that some families can be "high mutators" or tend to mutate more on particular markers. Thanks,
