Spatially Explicit Models to Investigate Geographic Patterns in the Distribution of Forensic STRs: Application to the North-Eastern Mediterranean
Human forensic STRs used for individual identification have been reported to have little power for inter-population analyses. Several methods have been developed which incorporate information on theExpand

Enlarging the gene-geography of Europe and the Mediterranean area to STR loci of common forensic use: longitudinal and latitudinal frequency gradients
Abstract Background: Tetranucleotide Short Tandem Repeats (STRs) for human identification and common use in forensic cases have recently been used to address the population genetics of theExpand

Mitochondrial DNA variation in an isolated area of Central Italy
Abstract Background: The genetic variation in Italy is the result of ancient population movement, demographic change, and geography. The increasing possibility of studying the maternal geneticExpand

Linking between genetic structure and geographical distance: Study of the maternal gene pool in the Ethiopian population
Abstract Background The correlation between genetics and geographical distance has already been examined through the study of the dispersion of human populations, especially in terms of uniparentalExpand

Traces of forgotten historical events in mountain communities in Central Italy: A genetic insight
Analysis of human genetic variation in mountain communities can shed light on the peopling of mountainous regions, perhaps revealing whether the remote geographic location spared them from outsideExpand

A finely resolved phylogeny of Y chromosome Hg J illuminates the processes of Phoenician and Greek colonizations in the Mediterranean
In order to improve the phylogeography of the male-specific genetic traces of Greek and Phoenician colonizations on the Northern coasts of the Mediterranean, we performed a geographically structuredExpand

A genetic portrait of the South‐Eastern Carpathians based on autosomal short tandem repeats loci used in forensics
This work aimed to describe the genetic landscape of the Balkan Peninsula, as revealed by STR markers commonly used in forensics and spatial methods specifically developed for genetic data.

Signs of continental ancestry in urban populations of Peru through autosomal STR loci and mitochondrial DNA typing
The human genetic diversity around the world was studied through several high variable genetic markers. In South America the demic consequences of admixture events between Native people, EuropeanExpand

An historical approach to the genetic distribution of KIR and HLA ligands in Eastern Sicilians compared to modern descendants of their invaders.
A geographical stratification of Killer Immunoglobulin-like Receptors (KIR) has been reported worldwide. We first analyzed the distribution of 15 KIR genes in a sample of 50 East-Sicilians (ES). WeExpand
