I especially like the diagrams...

Check out this one, showing the relationships between all the markers (HG3 here is R1b).

Or this world map...

I was just about to post this article myself. I saw it on the thread where you, Kemp and that 'Juice' person are discussing 'things' at SF. :)

I agree though, the marker relationship diagram and the world map are excellent.

The Map is very interesting indeed.

Most of the Y-chromosome data I have seen has been restricted to Europe only, and I have observed little as to what haplogroups pertain to global populations.

I know the use of super-haplogroups is necessary in order to make the map as simplistic as possible, although it would be interesting to see the the global distribution of actual haplogroups(hg 4, hg 7, etc.).

All I can really gather is that R equates to haplogroups 1, and 3, although even this I am unsure of.

Yes, R equals HG1 (west Europeans) and HG3 (east Europeans).

I is HG2 (middle eastern migrants).
