Y-chromosomal STR haplotypes in a Romanian population sample

Int J Legal Med. 2003 Oct;117(5):312-5. doi: 10.1007/s00414-003-0397-0. Epub 2003 Aug 7.


A set of seven STR-loci mapping on the male-specific region of the human Y chromosome (DYS19, DYS385, DYS389 I/II, DYS390, DYS391, DYS392, DYS393) were typed by means of two multiplex PCR reactions and capillary electrophoresis in a Romanian population sample of 104 unrelated males. Among the 97 different haplotypes observed, 92 were unique, while 5 occurred more than once. The observed haplotype diversity was 0.989.
