  • Population of Pedroches Valley, a hypothetical Berber settlement, located in the northwest portion of Córdoba province (Andalusia, Spain), had been analyzed for its Y‐chromosome diversity. Moreover, to contextualize this population, 127 Y‐chromosomes from a general Andalusia sample and a North African Berber community (Marrakech, Morocco) were also typed. For all samples, 24 single nucleotide polymorphisms of the non‐recombining portion of the Y‐chromosome (NRY) were analyzed and those samples… CONTINUE READING
