Summary

Texture and texture zero hints at underlying structure

Family symmetry ? GUT symmetry?

Due to the see-saw mechanism, the quark, charged lepton and neutrino

masses and mixing angles can be consistent with a similar structure for

their Dirac mass matrices.

Hints at an underlying (spontaneously broken) family symmetry? SO(10)XSU(3)?

Extraction of Yukawa couplings crucial to understanding fermion structure

Bounded off diagonal terms (anti)symmetric, hermitian SUSY data

Hints at an underlying (spontaneously broken) family symmetry? SO(10)XSU(3)?

gives a new solution to the SUSY FCNC and CP problems

Bounded off diagonal terms (anti)symmetric, hermitian SUSY data

A discrete non-Abelian subgroup can give vacuum alignment needed
