Haplotypes do not match haplogroup typing in Table 1

Posted by rac516 on 30 Nov 2012 at 20:12 GMT


Thank you for the most interesting paper. While examining Haplotypes in Table 1 I noticed that there is often very close matching between haplotypes where the haplogroup results are vastly different. An example is the 15/16 match between samples 997 and 998. For a Q-M242 and an R-M17 to match so closely would be extraordinary. Further, I suspect that both are Q-L275. Perhaps something has gone wrong?

Could there be a data shift between haplogroup and haplotype data?

The Table 2 has a publication error. We have notified the publication team of PLoS One and are waiting for them to change. The data in the columns have been interchanged during publication. But you may construct the frequency data from the supplementary raw data (table S1).
