  • The aboriginal tribal groups living in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands are thought to be the descendants of people who were part of the early human dispersal into the Southeast Asia. [...] Key Method To explore the origin and affinities of the Andaman Islanders, we studied the polymorphism at fifteen autosomal short tandem repeat (STR) loci, mitochondrial control region sequences and eight Y chromosomal STR loci in 194 blood samples, of which 94 samples were from the Andaman Negritos (24 Great Andamanese and 70…Expand Abstract
