Human population characteristics at the genetic level are integral to both forensic biology and population genetics. This study evaluates biparental microsatellite markers in five Austronesian-speaking groups to characterize their intra- and interpopulation differences. Genetic diversity was analyzed using 15 short tandem repeat (STR) loci from 338 unrelated individuals from 5 Pacific islands populations, including the aboriginal Ami and Atayal groups from Taiwan, Bali and Java in Indonesia… CONTINUE READING
