Y-chromosome STR Haplotypes and Alleles in the Population Sample of Old Believers Residing in the Northeastern Poland

Forensic Sci Int. 2004 Jun 30;143(1):65-8. doi: 10.1016/j.forsciint.2004.02.009.


Haplotype and allele frequencies for eight Y-STRs were determined in a population sample of Old Believers residing in the Northeastern Poland. A total of 127 unrelated males produced 100 different haplotypes. The most common haplotype was shared by 3.97% of the sample, while 85 haplotypes were unique. The gene diversity was 0.99.
