A hearty congratulations to the authors of this article (Richard A. Rocca, Gregory Magoon, David F. Reynolds, Thomas Krahn, Vincent O. Tilroe, Peter M. Op den Velde Boots, and Andrew J. Grierson), published in PLoS One

Discovery of Western European R1b1a2 Y Chromosome Variants in 1000 Genomes Project Data: An Online Community Approach

http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Ad ... ne.0041634

Most of the "affiliations" among the authors are listed as "independent researcher." What a fine example of a cooperative group effort, too.

The title of the thread should be R1b1a2, though.

Very true, Larry!

I've already written to Greg, congratulating him. It's a fantastic milestone for our whole community of citizen scientists! We can all take pride in the unprecedented achievement of the guys who put in all the work on R1b1a2. :)

Now the question is -- what are we going to do about all the other haplogroups? Hundreds of other great SNPs are being discovered, and they need to be published, too -- or else they'll be ignored by many population geneticists, as we've seen in some recent papers. We won't have the attraction of being the first, but I hope to hear from whoever else has been thinking along these lines, about how and where we could publish.

More later!

They settled a new paradigm. We can do the same for the J1 haplogroup.

Hopefully the potential of independent researches will continue to unfold in the future, for the benefit of both scientific community and general public, and new articles of this kind will continue to emerge on a regular basis.

Rootsy and RCO - if any help with a potential J1 article is needed, I'm at your disposal!

Yes, I think all haplogroups must write a new article with the new Z SNPs and the related tests. I will write a draft in the J1 haplogroup and everybody related to the J1 discoveries will be welcome to write/join the article. i will open a new thread to discuss it. Let's honour our J1 ancestors in our diversity !
