    mtDNA phylogeny redrawed by a Chinese team

    The mtDNA phylogeny have experienced several and major changes in this new paper.

    According to the authors haplogroup R is splitted between R, R0 and LM

    What do you think?

    Their phylogeny is different because they set the root of the tree to be at R.

    If you look at the branching pattern you can see it is actually pretty much the same as the normal one, only the root is different; and that is different because they predetermined it rather than rooting with an outgroup or whatever.

    Same with their Y chromosome tree: it's the same branching, but they have predetermined the root to be at F.

    The problem is their predetermination is wrong.
