In paternity testing the genetic profiles of the individuals are used to compare the relative likelihoods of the alleged father and the child being related as father/offspring against, usually, being unrelated. In the great majority of the cases, analyses with the widely used sets of short tandem repeat markers (STRs) provide powerful statistical evidence(More)
Sardinians are "outliers" in the European genetic landscape and, according to paleogenomic nuclear data, the closest to early European Neolithic farmers. To learn more about their genetic ancestry, we analyzed 3,491 modern and 21 ancient mitogenomes from Sardinia. We observed that 78.4% of modern mitogenomes cluster into 89 haplogroups that most likely(More)
The existence of pedigrees belonging to the same kinship class (i.e. indistinguishable through independent markers) is well known in the forensic community, and theoretical frameworks for autosomal and X-chromosomal markers were already developed for a pair of individuals. Nevertheless, studies for the cases where a greater number of individuals is(More)
