  • High-resolution Y chromosome haplotype analysis was performed in 143 paternally unrelated Israeli and Palestinian Moslem Arabs (I&P Arabs) by screening for 11 binary polymorphisms and six microsatellite loci. Two frequent haplotypes were found among the 83 detected: the modal haplotype of the I&P Arabs (∼14%) was spread throughout the region, while its one-step microsatellite neighbor, the modal haplotype of the Galilee sample (∼8%), was mainly restricted to the north. Geographic substructuring… CONTINUE READING
