A reference Y-chromosome short tandem repeat (STR) haplotype database is needed for Y-STR match interpretation as well as for national and regional characterization of populations. The aim of this study was to create a comprehensive Y-STR haplotype database of the Croatian contemporary population and to analyze substructure between the five Croatian regions. We carried out a statistical analysis of the data from previously performed genetic analyses collected during routine forensic work by the… 
Expanded Croatian 12 X-STR loci database with an overview of anomalous profiles.
This study established integral forensic Croatian X-chromosome database, proved forensic pertinence of Investigator® Argus X-12 Kit for the entire Croatian population and identified locus DXS10079 as a potential duplication hotspot.
Genetic structure in the paternal lineages of South East Spain revealed by the analysis of 17 Y-STRs
The genetic data of 17 Y chromosome short tandem repeats in 146 unrelated donor residents in the provinces of Granada, Málaga, and Almería were analyzed and confirmed that the GMA population does not reflect any male genetic influence of the North African people.
Y-Chromosomal STR Typing and Case Studies
This chapter elaborately discussed various Y-STR kits developed, its application, and accuracy, and highlighted the various reasons and conditions for mutations in Y chromosomes.
Haplotype data and mutation rates for the 23 Y-STR loci of PowerPlex® Y 23 System in a Northeast Italian population sample
The PowerPlex® Y 23 System (Promega) is a short tandem repeat (STR) multiplex that allows co-amplification of 23 gonosomal Y-STRs, combining 17 loci commonly included in commercially available kits and six new loci with the last two being rapidly mutating Y-strs (RM Y- STRs).
Molecular Genealogy of a Mongol Queen’s Family and Her Possible Kinship with Genghis Khan
It is proposed that Genghis Khan and his family carried Y-haplogroup R1b-M343, which is prevalent in West Eurasia, rather than the Y- Haplogroups C3c-M48, which was prevalent in Asia and which is widely accepted to be present in the family members of Genghi Khan.

Ancestry and admixture of a southernmost Chilean population: The reflection of a migratory history
This work uses uniparental and ancestry‐informative markers (AIMs) to explore the effects of historic migratory and admixture patterns on the current genetic composition of Punta Arenas.
Impact of Donor Age, Gender and Handling Time on the DNA Concentration Left on Different Surfaces
It was found that DNA concentration transferred to an item was independent of the handling time, but was dependent on the item’s texture ; the greatest concentration was left on plastic coated metal and the least on paper.


Genetic polymorphisms of 17 short tandem repeat loci on Y chromosome in central Croatian population
The central Croatian population is now well characterized in terms of Y-chromosome STRs, thus providing a solid basis for further forensic and genetic epidemiology studies.
Population genetic analysis of haplotypes based on 17 short tandem repeat loci on Y chromosome in population sample from eastern Croatia.
This is the first description of Y chromosome haplotyping of the population of eastern Croatia, which may serve as a basis for genetic epidemiology and forensic studies and further studies are needed for characterization of the genetic structure of the Y-chromosome in the modern Croatian population.
Population data for 17 short tandem repeat loci on Y chromosome in northern Croatia
This article provides the first overview of the Y chromosome STR variability in northern Croatia, thus providing the referent point for any future forensic and genetic epidemiology efforts in this region.
Y-chromosomal short tandem repeat haplotypes in southern Croatian male population defined by 17 loci.
The Y-chromosome structure in men from southern Croatia is very diverse and combination of Y chromosome 17 STR loci may be used as a powerful tool for individual identification and parentage analysis in the southern Croatian male population.
Haplotype frequencies and population data of nine Y-chromosomal STR polymorphisms in a German and a Chinese population.
Y-chromosomal STR loci are of increasing interest in paternity testing, forensic casework, anthropological and evolutionary studies. We participate in a cooperation to establish an international
Slow and fast evolving markers typing in Modena males (North Italy).
The availability of joint distribution of MSY haplotypes and haplogroup frequencies is becoming an important tool for both human evolutionary studies and forensic investigation, but large databases of complete Y-lineages are needed for a better understanding of the power of the combined use of Y-specific polymorphisms.
Allele frequencies and population data for 17 Y-chromosome STR loci in a Serbian population sample from Vojvodina province.
Comparisons were made with previously published haplotype data on neighbouring population samples and significant differences were demonstrated at DYS19, DYS389II and DYS393 loci, and pairwise comparison of populations revealed that the sample was significantly different only from Hungarian sample.
Review of Croatian genetic heritage as revealed by mitochondrial DNA and Y chromosomal lineages.
The aim of this review is to summarize the existing data collected in high-resolution phylogenetic studies of mitochondrial DNA and Y chromosome variation in mainland and insular Croatian populations, and reveal a clearly evident Slavic component in the paternal gene pool of contemporary Croatian men.

The forensic application of patrilinearly transmitted Y-chromosomal markers requires knowledge of its substantial sensitivity to population substructuring, and the population-specific distribution of haplotypes can help to infer the population of origin of an unknown male DNA.
Online reference database of European Y-chromosomal short tandem repeat (STR) haplotypes.
The reference database of highly informative Y-chromosomal short tandem repeat (STR) haplotypes (YHRD), available online at, represents the largest collection of male-specific
