This study describes autosomal STR profiles of the populations of South and North Afghanistan. A total of 188 unrelated individuals residing north (n = 42) and south (n = 146) of the Hindu Kush Range within the territory of Afghanistan were examined against the background of 54 geographically targeted reference populations from Eurasia and North East Africa. The main objective of this study was to investigate longitudinal gene flow across the Hindu Kush Range and Eurasia. Genetic…

Afghan Hindu Kush: Where Eurasian Sub-Continent Gene Flows Converge
TLDR
The pattern of genetic variation indicates that the people of Afghanistan are made up of a mosaic of components representing various geographic regions of Eurasian ancestry, and that the Hindu Kush is a confluence of gene flows rather than a source of distinctly autochthonous populations that have arisen in situ.
Y-STR profiling in two Afghanistan populations.
TLDR
A median-joining network based on 15 Y-STR loci displays limited haplotype sharing between the two Afghan populations, possibly due to the Hindu Kush Mountain range serving as a natural barrier to gene flow between thetwo regions.
Afghanistan from a Y-chromosome perspective
TLDR
This study demonstrates genetic similarities between Pathans from Afghanistan and Pakistan, both of which are characterized by the predominance of haplogroup R1a1a*-M198 (>50%) and the sharing of the same modal haplotype.
Afghanistan's Ethnic Groups Share a Y-Chromosomal Heritage Structured by Historical Events
TLDR
This study has analyzed, for the first time, the four major ethnic groups in present-day Afghanistan: Hazara, Pashtun, Tajik, and Uzbek, using 52 binary markers and 19 short tandem repeats on the non-recombinant segment of the Y-chromosome to suggest all current Afghans largely share a heritage derived from a common unstructured ancestral population.
Inferring recent human phylogenies using forensic STR technology.
TLDR
The application of five STR loci routinely used in forensic analysis for delineating the phylogenetic relationships of 10 human populations representing the three major racial groups exhibited strong geographic and racial partitioning consistent with that obtained with mtDNA haplotypes, Y-chromosome markers, SNPs, PAIs as well as classic genetic polymorphisms.
Genetic variation in Arizona Mexican Americans: estimation and interpretation of admixture proportions.
TLDR
New genetic typings on 730 Arizona Mexican Americans for the Hla-A, HLA-B, ABO, Rh, MNSs, Duffy, Kidd, and Kell loci are presented here and they are used to estimate ancestral contributions.
Meiosis study in a population sample from Afghanistan: allele frequencies and mutation rates of 16 STR loci
The 16 short tandem repeat systems D3S1358, VWA, FGA, TH01, TPOX, CSF1PO, D5S818, D13S317, D7S820, ACTBP2, D2S1338, D16S539, D19S433, D21S11, D18S51 and D8S1179 were amplified in a population sample
Population genetics of 29 autosomal STRs and 17 Y-chromosomal STRs in a population sample from Afghanistan
In this study, allele frequencies for 29 autosomal short tandem repeats (STRs) and haplotype frequencies for 17 Y-chromosomal STRs of an Afghan population have been generated. Samples from 348 men
Prehistoric Archeological Surveys and Excavations in Afghanistan: 1959-1960 and 1961-1963
TLDR
Recent research indicates that the foothills of northern Afghanistan may have been one of the early centers of incipient agriculture, transitional between the food gathering of the Paleolithic and the food production of the Neolithic.
Autosomal STR frequencies in Afghanistan population.
TLDR
Simultaneous amplifications of 16 STRs loci (multiplexed PCR) were performed by using AmpFlSTR® Identifiler™ (Applied Biosystems, Foster City, CA) according to the user manual recommendations.
