Y-chromosomal STR haplotypes in a Belgian population sample and identification of a micro-variant with a flanking site mutation at DYS19

Forensic Sci Int. 2005 Aug 11;152(1):89-94. doi: 10.1016/j.forsciint.2005.02.010.


Allele frequencies and haplotypes for 12 Y-chromosomal STR loci included in the Powerplex System (Promega, Madison, USA) were determined in a sample of 113 unrelated males of Belgian origin. Ninety-nine different haplotypes were observed with an overall haplotype diversity of 0.997.
