  • The clinal pattern observed for the distribution of Y‐chromosome lineages in Europe is not always reflected at a geographically smaller scale. Six hundred and sixty‐three male samples from the 18 administrative districts of Portugal were typed for 25 Y‐chromosome biallelic and 15 microsatellite markers, in order to assess the degree of substructuring of male lineage distribution. Haplogroup frequency distributions, Analysis of Molecular Variance (AMOVA) and genetic distance analyses at both Y… CONTINUE READING
