My mtDNA subclade has been revised from U3b to U3b2, with the possibility that it will also change to U3b2b.  At Genbank, I believe I only see 6 U3b2 listed.  The suggestion is that the ancestry is perhaps Armenian, or western Egyptian (at about 12500 years).  I've been told that "you have 4 extra mutations in addition to those that define U3b2, these are at 12744, 16166 deletion, and 11084 and 16311".  Apparently the 16166 deletion is noteworthy.

I'm not a 'DNA savvy' person, but I'm highly motivated to understand more !  Are there any Forum members who may wish to comment of U3b2>U3b2b.
