Y-chromosomal STR haplotypes in Central Thai population

Forensic Sci Int Genet. 2010 Apr;4(3):e71-2. doi: 10.1016/j.fsigen.2009.06.007. Epub 2009 Jul 19.


12 Y-STR loci (DYS19, DYS389I, DYS389II, DYS390, DYS391, DYS392, DYS393, DYS385a/b, DYS438, DYS439 and DYS437) were typed with PowerPlex Y System (Promega, USA) in a total sample of 501 unrelated males from the central part of Thailand. Allele frequencies and gene diversity for each Y-STR locus were determined. Haplotype diversity from the combined 12 Y-STR loci was 0.9996. The present results can be used as Thai ethnic genetic information resources in routine forensic analysis.
