Balaresque et al., 2015 (R1a)

Today, I want to identify R1a1 individuals that have the same STR8 haplotype (DYS393, DYS390, DYS19, DYS391, DYS439, DYS389i, DYS392, DYS389ii) as DS2 and DS15 in the recently published paper of Balaresque et al., 2015. Note that STR data have very limited information.

Edit 01/16.2015:

I started to read the paper. In the supplementary table 3 it provides the number of individuals of each region belonging to a specific DC. I focused on Cinnioglu et al., 2004 data that is included in the supplementary table 3. It claims that in East Anatolia (region 4) 9 out 82 belong to DC2. There are only 9 individuals in region 4, none of them is a perfect match. I realized that only 5 out of 8 STRs need to be identical to belong to DC2 (this is a pretty vague cluster). Using this vague rule I identified more than 800 individuals that are within cluster DC2, a lot of them are not within Z93 and from Europe (Z282+ individuals):

Overall, this suggests that data using STR values have very little value, no matter where it is published, especially when it is about vague clusters based on 8 STRs only.

Edit2 01/16.2015:

In the current FTDNA R1a1a and Subclades Y-DNA Project I identified 1792 out of 3418 belonging to DC2 (52.4%).
In the current FTDNA R1a1a and Subclades Y-DNA Project I identified 2668 out of 3418 belonging to DC15 (78.1%).

This highlights that STR values cannot substitute SNPs.
