Human Y-chromosomal STR types in north Thailand

Int J Legal Med. 1999;112(3):211-2. doi: 10.1007/s004140050238.


A north Thai Y-haplotype database consisting of the loci DYS19, DXYS156-Y, DYS390, DYS391, DYS392, DYS393, and the four subsegments of DYS389 is presented. We observed 44 Y-types in 50 unrelated Thais, and the haplotype diversity was calculated to be 97.36%. No Y-types were shared with a sample of 55 Japanese, but 3 matches were found in a sample of 61 Han Chinese, and there was one Thai-German match in a larger west German sample (n = 179).
