comment Looking for a gene in my raw genetic data. What are the possible causes for this?
In short, rs35705950 is not a gene, but rather a SNP, a SNP that occurs within the gene MUC5B. 23andMe measures a selected subset of human SNPs, less than 0.1% of the genome.

comment Evidence & discussions of hard polytomy
Sorry, no. Besides, I'm not knowledgeable in this area; I just read some abstracts found via Google Scholar. I suspect that essentially all "hard" polytomies are just soft polytomies where evidence to resolve them is hard to acquire.
