Root of human Y-chromosome phylogeny is now much older than both mtDNA Eve and first modern human fossils.
Conference attendees feel free to correct/supplement my understanding of what was said.
UPDATE: With respect to the confidence interval, Bonnie Schrack says:
The 338,000 years ago figure was the median (middle) of the confidence interval, which I believe was 95%, and not 98%. The lower limit of the confidence interval was still a bit over 200,000, I think -- that is, still before the time when fossils have been found showing fully anatomically modern features. Mike specifically said that even if the true age of A00 varied by 10 or 20% from the estimate, it would still be before the time when anatomically modern humans are thought to have appeared. I don't remember the upper limit too clearly, but as I recall, it was over 500,000 ybp.UPDATE II: There is some uncertainty about the level of significance, with different people remembering anything from 90-98%. Some newer information from Tim Janzen:
Michael gave a TMRCA estimate of 338,000 years with a confidence interval range of 246,000 and 563,000 years for the A00/A0 node. He gave a TMRCA estimate of 202,000 years with a confidence interval range of 133,000 to 366,000 years for the A0/R-M269 node.I guess we will have to wait for the publication to see the exact numbers, but it certainly appears that A00 branched off from the rest of mankind at an age that is much earlier than the next most basal clade (A0).
