The average probability of exclusion for a Y-linked locus is computed and compared with that for an autosomal locus. It is shown that even if a Y-linked locus is only marginally polymorphic, it considerably enhances the chance of paternity exclusion in paternity dispute cases involving sons. For the positive identification of paternity, a Y-linked marker is not necessarily more ideal than an analogous autosomal marker since the discrimination of true fathers from random men not excluded from… CONTINUE READING
