Human chromosome Y-specific short tandem repeat (Y-specific STR) markers have useful properties for forensic applications. However, there is a need to develop more Y-specific STR markers, because the discriminating power of each STR locus is limited. In the present study, we describe our results on six new Y-specific STR markers that were initially located using sequence database information by Ayub et al. and were named DYS434, DYS435, DYS436, DYS437, DYS438 and DYS439. Our studies focused on… CONTINUE READING
