I really don't know all the drama behind all of it, but I've tried to only map things based off an entry I know to be legit based on who entered it.
I agree the categories are silly - the OG, Berry, Skunk, Landrace, etc. but you have to start some where, and it isn't as if the data is useless, it just can't be used as "fact" per say is what I'm gathering?
What plants did Sam enter in which the parents didn't properly attach themselves to their offspring in the galaxy?
Example, there are no less than 4 different "Bubba Kush" clusters including a pre-98 bubba cluster. One of those Bubbas is in the "Master Kush" cluster - which is a mess of Hindu, Afghan, Master, etc.
I'll repeat, I don't think the data is irrelevant. Take it for what it is. It tells us more than we used to know prior and for that reason is a step forward.
I'll admit, I was under the impression it was more fool proof than it seems. However, I was struggling to understand how there are now over 50+ plants in the OG303 cluster, where JoshD cut/entry is located. I guess I'm of the opinion these plants cluster this way because they are siblings from the same seed lot or in the OG case selfed variants, sharing more or less the exact same DNA - or - in some instances, it's simply the same plant entered under the "incorrect" name.
TK is in the OG303 cluster as well.
I think, once you have a 10+ plant cluster, you should be able to zoom into those individual plants for more specific degrees of separation. However, if I get what you all are saying, this isn't possible because they aren't actually testing enough DNA to establish this and their algorithm is essentially lumping the plants that are "nearly" the same?
