Forensic Sci Int. 2004 Feb 10;140(1):117-21. doi: 10.1016/j.forsciint.2003.11.003.


Haplotype and allele frequencies for the eight Y-STRs were determined in a population sample of 156 unrelated Byelorussian males. The most common haplotype was shared by 3.85% of the sample, while 121 haplotypes were unique. The gene diversity was 0.98.
