My blog had some serious troubles while I was away for a few days, but I should have everything up and running smoothly today, including comments (aside from those concerining poker and drugs).
I have a question about extra strands on the X-chromosomes, when i was conceived i went through DNA testing due to my mothers age, they found an enlarged X, which it turns out my father has too but he was abandon and can not trace back his family, the scientists said that the same pattern is found in some North African and Brazilian tribes. I would like to get some more information, is there anyone who has written on the subject?
