A selective difference between human Y-chromosomal DNA haplotypes

Abstract:

DNA analysis is making a valuable contribution to the understanding of human evolution [1]. Much attention has focused on mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) [2] and the Y chromosome [3] and [4], both of which escape recombination and so provide information on maternal and paternal lineages, respectively. It is often assumed that the polymorphisms observed at loci on mtDNA and the Y chromosome are selectively neutral and, therefore, that existing patterns of molecular variation can be used to deduce...
