The population of Argentina is the result of the intermixing between several groups, including Indigenous American, European and African populations. Despite the commonly held idea that the population of Argentina is of mostly European origin, multiple studies have shown that this process of admixture had an impact in the entire Argentine population.

Frequency data of the short tandem repeat (STR) loci D3S1358, vWA, FGA, D8S1179, D21S11, D18S51, D5S818, D13S317, D7S820, HUMTH01, D4S243, D18S535, HUMF13A1 and D12S391 were determined in the Puna population (Andean region from north western Argentina). In this study, 5 out of the 14 loci did not meet Hardy-Weinberg expectations. The excess of homozygotes(More)
We studied degree of variability and relationships among populations belonging to five species of the section Strombocarpa of the family Leguminosae, namelyProsopis ferox, P. torquata, P. pubescens, P. strombulifera andP. reptans, by isozyme electrophoresis. The genetic similarity betweenP. reptans andP. strombulifera is high enough for the two to be(More)
Allele frequencies for 15 short tandem repeat (STR) loci were obtained from a sample of 110 individuals from the Calchaqui Valleys population (North-Western Argentina). The combined power of exclusion and combined power of discriminating for the 15 tested STR loci were 0.999964 and 0.9999999999999998, respectively. Matching probability was 1 in 4.58 ×(More)
