i4000186(C;C) seems to be an ancestral allele of IJ rather than indicative of only I Haplogroup
- The i4000186(C;C) mutation is a reliable indicator of Haplogroup I (Y-DNA) and is also referred to as P38+.
- This does not seem to be a reliable statement. I am J1c3d according to extensive testing by FTDNA. 23andMe uses the more well documented designation of J1e. Results using this as a criteria would make me I haplotype.
- These are my 23andMe results:
- Indicates Haplogroup J1
- rs9341313 Y 21151206 G
- Indicates Haplogroup I
- i4000186 Y 12994387 C
- It would seem the i4000185 SNP is ancestral and either IJK or IJ.
