The distribution of Y-chromosomal variation from the 12 Y-SNP and 17 Y-STR markers was determined in six major provinces (Seoul-Gyeonggi, Gangwon, Chungcheong, Jeolla, Gyeongsang, and Jeju) to evaluate these populations’ possible genetic structure and differentiation in Korea. As part of the present study, a 10-plex SNaPshot assay and two singleplex SNaPshot assays were developed. Based on the result of 12 Y-SNP markers (M9, M45, M89, M119, M122, M174, M175, M214, RPS4Y, P31, SRY465, and 47z… Expand
Understanding the Y chromosome variation in Korea—relevance of combined haplogroup and haplotype analyses
TLDR
High-resolution haplogroup and haplotype data will improve the understanding of regional Y-chromosome variation or recent migration routes and will also help to infer haplogroups background or common ancestry. Expand
Forensic genetic data of 6 Y-STR loci: an expanded Korean population database.
TLDR
Analyzing the expanded database including the previously reported data sets and the present data set allowed further discrimination of the Korean males, and identified 499 haplotypes among which 493 were found once. Expand
The genetic polymorphisms of 9 Y-STR loci in Han population from east China
TLDR
Nine Y-STR loci developed by us are suitable genetic markers for forensic applications because their identifying power was higher and their applications of forensic science were evaluated. Expand
Y Haplogroup Distribution in Korean and Other Populations
TLDR
There were significant differences between Koreans and African Americans, Caucasians and Mexican Americans, and they were easily discernible without requiring haplogroup O sub-classification, which is likely to be useful for East Asia group comparisons. Expand
High frequencies of Y-chromosome haplogroup O2b-SRY465 lineages in Korea: a genetic perspective on the peopling of Korea
TLDR
The findings are consistent with linguistic, archaeological and historical evidence, which suggest that the direct ancestors of Koreans were proto-Koreans who inhabited the northeastern region of China and the Korean Peninsula during the Neolithic and Bronze Ages. Expand
Y-SNP miniplexes for East Asian Y-chromosomal haplogroup determination in degraded DNA.
TLDR
Four multiplex PCR systems followed by single base extension reactions were developed to score 22 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and identify the most frequent East Asian Y chromosome haplogroups and will be useful tools for Y-chromosomal haplogroup determination in anthropological and forensic studies of East Asian populations. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA haplogroups and homogeneity in the Korean population
TLDR
The distribution of mtDNA haplogroup variation using a 20-plex SNaPshot assay for determination of the major East Asian haplogroups was analyzed to evaluate the possible genetic structure and differentiation from 708 unrelated individuals residing in six major provinces in Korea. Expand
Genetic diversity and haplotype structure of 24 Y‐chromosomal STR in Chinese Hui ethnic group and its genetic relationships with other populations
TLDR
The results in the study indicated the 24 Y‐STRs had a high level of polymorphism in Hui group and hence could be a powerful tool for forensic application and population genetic study. Expand
Phylogenetic analysis of two haploid markers of 500-years-old human remains found in a central region of Korea
TLDR
It was found that the vicinal burial of the Koreans seemed to be related matrilineally or patrilinesally to the remains, consistent with previous reports that the peopling of Korea is likely to have involved multiple sources. Expand
Forensic Science International: Genetics
TLDR
The present study contributed to the enrichment of the forensic Y-chromosome databases with a high resolution 23 Y-STR marker set, which is informative in forensic casework, such as familial searching and estimating the geographical origin of the offender. Expand

A forensic method for the simultaneous analysis of biallelic markers identifying Y chromosome haplogroups inferred as having originated in Asia and the Japanese archipelago.
TLDR
A method for simultaneous analysis of seven biallelic markers (M130, M131, M57, M125, M175, M122 and M134) was developed for forensic application to identify haplogroups inferred as having originated in the Japanese archipelago. Expand

Genetic polymorphisms of 16 Y chromosomal STR loci in Korean population.
TLDR
Allele frequencies and haplotypes of 16 Y chromosomal STR loci included in the AmpFlSTR((R)) Yfilertrade mark system were obtained from a sample of 526 unrelated Korean male individuals and found 13 atypical alleles, including null, duplicated and microvariant alleles. Expand
Analysis of Y chromosome STR haplotypes in the European part of Russia reveals high diversities but non-significant genetic distances between populations
TLDR
Whereas gradual change in the Y chromosome pool exists between Russia and the Slavic-speaking populations to the West, remarkable discontinuities were observed with neighbouring populations in the East, North and South. Expand
Y-STR variation in Albanian populations: implications on the match probabilities and the genetic legacy of the minority claiming an Egyptian descent
TLDR
Y chromosome variation at 12 STR (the Powerplex® Y system core set) and 18 binary markers was investigated in two major and minor populations from Albania, finding at least 85% of Y lineages in the Jevgs, the cultural minority claiming an Egyptian descent, turned out to be of either Roma or Balkan ancestry.
