Haplotypes constructed from Y-chromosome markers were used to trace the paternal origins of the Jewish Diaspora. A set of 18 biallelic polymorphisms was genotyped in 1,371 males from 29 populations, including 7 Jewish (Ashkenazi, Roman, North African, Kurdish, Near Eastern, Yemenite, and Ethiopian) and 16 non-Jewish groups from similar geographic locations.(More)
We examined variation on the nonrecombining portion of the human Y chromosome to investigate human evolution during the last 200,000 years. The Y-specific polymorphic sites included the Y Alu insertional polymorphism or "YAP" element (DYS287), the poly(A) tail associated with the YAP element, three point mutations in close association with the YAP insertion(More)

The aim of the pilot was for midwives to ask all women 16 years old and over three questions about domestic violence during their first visit interview. The pilot was for a three month period. Prior to undertaking the(More)
Because analysis of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) can be invaluable in understanding genomic variation and the genetic basis of disease, there is a need for high-throughput, high-accuracy mutation detection methods for identifying SNPs. A sequencing core facility can enhance the services it offers by providing genome analysis methods to search for(More)
Reducing sodium intake among black Americans is an especially complex area of hypertension treatment and prevention. Not only are salty foods characteristic of the typical American diet, but certain highly salted and salt-cured foods are also particularly important to black Americans as ethnic foods.A consciousness-raising approach to stimulating(More)
