Population data for 12 Y-chromosome STRs in a sample from Brescia (northern Italy)

Forensic Sci Int. 2005 Aug 11;152(1):83-7. doi: 10.1016/j.forsciint.2005.02.006.


Twelve Y-chromosome STRs--DYS19, DYS389-I, DYS389-II, DYS390, DYS391, DYS392, DYS393, DYS385, DYS437, DYS438, DYS439--were typed in a population sample (n=104) of unrelated males from Brescia (northern Italy). A total of 91 haplotypes were identified by the 12 Y-STR loci. The haplotype diversity (98.68%), discrimination capacity (87.50%) and gene diversity were calculated.
