It is? What is 1.5% of 46 chromosomes?
But even this approach is not really very relevant. The 4th great grandparent assessment is looking at the INDIVIDUAL-SPECIFIC genetics… rather than the POPULATION-AVERAGES.
IF the 1.5% was based on mitochondrial genetics… that would mean 3 Neanderthal females for every 197 homo sapiens females!
Hmmm… that would be 1 for every 66 sapiens or so.
1 < 2p < 4gp < 8gp < 16gp < 32gp < 64gp …hmmm…
Hey, @John_Dalton… I think you make a good point!!!
