We established a data set of 17 Y-STRs (DYS19, DYS389I, DYS389II, DYS390, DYS391, DYS392, DYS393, DYS385a/b, DYS438, DYS439, DYS437, DYS448, DYS456, DYS458, DYS635 and Y-GATA-H4) of 832 unrelated males from the Sverdlovsk region, Russian Federation. In total we observed 773 different haplotypes of which 732 were unique and 41 occurred between two and nine times in the investigated population. The haplotype diversity was 0.9981 and the discrimination capacity was 0.9291. This study represents the Y-STR reference data set for forensic applications in the Sverdlovsk region.
