Hi bluegenes, just need a couple clarifications:

The first paper gives us a point mutation rate of 4 in 13 generations, or approximately 1 for every three generations, on the 1/5 of the non-recombining area of the Y-chromosome (which is ~95% of the total chromosome).

Would this rephrasing be acceptable to you:

"The first paper derives a point mutation rate of 4 in 13 generations (or approximately 1 for every three generations) for 1/5 of the non-recombining area of the Y-chromosome. The non-recombining area is ~95% of the total chromosome."

That would be about 300 for the entire chromosome.

"300 mutations" would be more clear.

If you make these or equivalent changes I'll promote the thread.
