Update: Mutation rates and AMOVA

June 3, 2009: We have edited the Research page and included a comprehensive list of mutations and mutation rates per Y-STR locus as well as related information.
Furthermore we improved the AMOVA calculation e.g. to allow the inclusion of population sets in your analysis. We switched from Kruskal's (Venables & Ripley 2002) to Sammon's formula (Sammon 1969) to calculate the MDS plot. The main difference between the two approaches is that Sammon's formula places more emphasis to small distances due to an additional normalization term.
