  • Background: The Cuban population is essentially a result of the admixture between Spanish, West African and, to a lesser degree, Amerindian tribes that inhabited the island. Aim: The study analysed the genetic structure of the three principal ethnic groups from Havana City, and the contribution of parental populations to its genetic pool. Subjects and methods: According to genealogical information and anthropological traits, 206 subjects were classified as Mulatto, of Spanish decent or of… CONTINUE READING
