Variation at 16 STR loci in Rwandans (Hutu) and implications on profile frequency estimation in Bantu-speakers
A data set of 16 autosomal STRs (the 13 CODIS loci plus HumCD4, HumFES, HumF13A1) was obtained in a sample of 52 unrelated Hutus from Rwanda. Geno-types at all loci met Hardy-Weinberg expectations with the exception of ...
Variation of female and male lineages in sub-Saharan populations: The importance of sociocultural factors
In this paper, we present a study of genetic variation in sub-Saharan Africa, which is based on published and unpublished data on fast-evolving (hypervariable region 1 of mitochondrial DNA and six microsatellites of Y ...
A study of Y-chromosome microsatellite variation in sub-Saharan Africa: A comparison between FST and RST genetic distances
Seven Y-chromosome microsatellite loci (DYS19, DYS389I, DYS389II, DYS390, DYS391, DYS392, and DYS393) were analyzed in three populations from sub-Saharan Africa: the Bamileke and Ewondo populations from Cameroon and the ...
A multi-perspective view of genetic variation in Cameroon
In this study, we report the genetic variation of autosomal and Y-chromosomal microsatellites in a large Cameroon population dataset (a total of 11 populations) and jointly analyze novel and previous genetic data (mitochondrial ...
Brief Communication: mtDNA variation in North Cameroon: Lack of Asian lineages and implications for back migration from Asia to Sub-Saharan Africa
The hypervariable region-1 and four nucleotide positions (10400, 10873, 12308, and 12705) of the coding region of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) were analyzed in 441 individuals belonging to eight populations (Daba, Fali, Fulbe, ...
The analysis of variation of mtDNA hypervariable region 1 suggests that Eastern and Western Pygmies diverged before the Bantu expansion
The Eastern Pygmies from Zaire and Western Pygmies from Cameroon, Congo, and the Central African Republic represent the two principal groups of African Pygmies. In the "recent divergence" hypothesis in which Western Pygmies ...
