Microsatellite haplotype networks. The networks describe the variability of 7 microsatellite loci in Y chromosome haplogroups, among ethnic groups. a) haplogroup E3a*-M2 (N = 75, singletons excluded); b) haplogroup E3b1-M78 (N = 11), "*" denoting the E3b1-β haplotypes. Node sizes are proportional to the number of individuals.
