I have been working on the part that shows the current and historic definitions of a branch under Phylotree. From the first post, we have a user story --What the user wants. As a user with mtDNA results, I would like to know how the named branch is defined in the current Phylotree build and has been in past ones.
Continuing from my first post on the Encyclopedia of mtDNA Origins... After learning the basics of using the Pods framework to create custom post types, custom fields, and templates to present them on webpages, I decided to create an mtDNA stories custom post type. For those who don't know Wordpress, post types are different types of web pages. All pages of the same type share a common set of fields and features. Creating a type lets one add additional parts that only make sense for some pages.
The Encyclopedia of mtDNA Origins began as a idea of what the average person sought in their mtDNA results. In 2011 and early 2012, I was working with National Geographic to produce the research and text for the Geno 2.0 launch. It was a seemingly endless flurry of activity. The project took place across three moves and four homes: Virginia, Northern California, Kentucky, and finally Texas. I wrote over 400 pages of text. Much of what we talked about going into the project was completed. Some had to be set aside. Then it was complete.

Q-L191 was another gift-marker. Like Q-L456, it was found during a Sanger SNP test for another marker. Unfortunately for the project, it took us many months and many more L191 results to discover just which Q-M346 population it joined. The project still has only three members who are positive. All trace their origins to Chihuahua State, Mexico.
