To evaluate the utility of Y-STR data for DNA testing in two ethnic populations of Xinjiang province, a sample of 338 subjects (121 Kazakhs and 217 Uighurs) was tested. In the Kazakh and Uighur populations, the haplotype diversity was 0.868 and 0.996, respectively, and the discrimination capacity was 0.5950 and 0.8940, respectively. High numbers of singleton haplotypes were observed among Xinjiang Uighurs, but fewer were found in Kazakhs. Our results were also compared with geographically and…

Genetic analysis of 17 Y-STR loci from 1026 individuals of Han populations in Jilin Province, Northeast China

These data provide a reference for the Y-STR database in Jilin Province, and they may be valuable for population genetic analysis.

Analysis of 17 Y‐STR loci haplotype and Y‐chromosome haplogroup distribution in five Chinese ethnic groups

The 17 Y‐STR loci are highly polymorphic markers in the five groups and hence are very useful in forensic application, population genetics, and human evolution studies.

Genetic characterisation for Yan’an Han population in Northern Shaanxi Province, China, via 38Y-STRs using Yfiler™ Platinum

Comprehensive population comparisons showed Yan'an Han is genetically closer to linguistically similar populations in China, and more related to East Asian populations around the world.



Frequency data for 17 Y-chromosomal STRs and 19 Y-chromosomal SNPs in the Tyrolean district of Reutte, Austria

A data set of 17 Y-STRs of 261 males from the Tyrolean district of Reutte is established, in which 228 different haplotypes were observed, 203 of which were unique and 25 occurred between two and four times.

Mitochondrial and Y-chromosomal profile of the Kazakh population from East Kazakhstan

Genetic evidence suggests the existence of a single paternal founder lineage in the population of East Kazakhstan, which is consistent with verbal genealogical data of the local tribes.

Y-Chromosome Variation in Altaian Kazakhs Reveals a Common Paternal Gene Pool for Kazakhs and the Influence of Mongolian Expansions

The shared paternal ancestry of Kazakhs differentiates them from other Central Asian populations, and all of them showed evidence of genetic influence by the 13th century CE Mongol Empire.

Different matrilineal contributions to genetic structure of ethnic groups in the silk road region in china.

Direct evidence supporting the suggestion that Central Asia is the location of genetic admixture of the East and the West is provided, with the highest frequency present in Uygur and Uzbek samples, and no western Eurasian type was found in Han Chinese samples from the same place.

The publication of population genetic data in the International Journal of Legal Medicine: guidelines

There were only few differences between the peoples from Vineta and other Northern European populations, but major differences to the populations from Brazil and the Ivory Coast, as expected.

Publication of population data of linearly inherited DNA markers in the International Journal of Legal Medicine

Details on specific criteria relevant for the analysis and publication of population studies on haploid DNA markers, i.e. Y-chromosomal polymorphisms and mitochondrial DNA are provided.


An abstract is like a postcard to a friend: use simple sentences, don’t get technical and utter a clean message in a maximum of 50 to 100 words, which will make you focus on the genuine achievements of the paper.
