The common, Near‐Eastern origin of Ashkenazi and Sephardi Jews supported by Y‐chromosome similarity
About 80 Sephardim, 80 Ashkenazim and 100 Czechoslovaks were examined for the Y‐specific RFLPs revealed by the probes p12f2 and p49a, f on TaqI DNA digests. The aim of the study was to investigateExpand

Y chromosome DNA polymorphisms in human populations: differences between Caucasoids and Africans detected by 49a and 49f probes
Several Y‐specific TaqI fragments are recognized by 49a and 49f probes in human male DNA digests. The occurrence of polymorphic variations in six of these fragments (A, B, C, D, F and I) has recentlyExpand
