Bekada et al 2015 have published their paper “Genetic Heterogeneity in Algerian Human Populations”. In the present Algerian study only one J2a -M410 was found in North-west Oran1. Combined with earlier studies 8 J2 samples out of 305 total (Y-STR19 haplotypes + major Y-SNPs, S1 Table). By comparison there are 54 J1-M267 samples. IMHO another puzzle piece making early J2 expansion over Northwest Africa to Iberia/Europe unlikely. Other routes seem to be better expansion vectors.
Sanger Sequencing is is the reliable technology still used by forensic labs and to certify variants on the genome with high accuracy and is also accepted by ISOGG as most reliable SNP certification. The trained Y-chr scientist and experienced lab-director Thomas Krahn together with his wife Astrid has founded YSEQ based in Berlin/Germany at the of 2013 which is leading […]
