Genetic polymorphisms of 17 Y chromosomal STRs in She and Manchu ethnic populations from China

Forensic Sci Int Genet. 2016 May:22:e12-e14. doi: 10.1016/j.fsigen.2016.01.011. Epub 2016 Jan 19.


To evaluate the utility of Yfiler haplotype for DNA testing in two ethnic populations of China, a sample of 413 unrelated individuals (152 Shes and 261 Manchus) was determined. In the She and Manchu populations, the haplotype diversity was 0.9990 and 0.9988, respectively, and the discrimination capacity was 0.9474 and 0.9080, respectively. Research results will be valuable for human identification and paternity tests in the two minority regions and for Chinese population genetic study in the future.

Keywords: Chinese Manchu ethnic; Chinese She ethnic; Haplotypes; Y-chromosomal STR; Yfiler.
