Forensic Sci Int. 2001 Nov 1;122(2-3):184-8. doi: 10.1016/s0379-0738(01)00500-x.


A sample of 1176 males from 10 Italian regions have been typed for DYS19, DYS389-I, DYS389-II, DYS390, DYS391, DYS392, DYS393, and DYS385. Individual haplotype data are available on line. A low degree of variation is present among regions. Use of this database is specifically recommended for forensic applications in Italy.
