Bowles DNA Project Kit #48518

This Brewer line is a very close match for 5 of our group 1 participants. It matches 25/25 with all 5, and 36/37 with 3 of them. The 25/25 matches are with kits 48497 and 29524. The 36/37 matches are with kits 67799, 47583, and 29356. The one mismatched marker is one that is known to mutate more quickly than the average. It seems reasonable to assume that this Brewer line must somehow merge with these Bowles lines.
