      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 ...
    • Tracing the distribution and evolution of lactase persistence in southern Europe through the study of the T-13910 variant 

      Anagnostou P; Battaggia C; Coia V; Capelli C; Fabbri C; Pettener D; Destro-Bisol G; Luiselli D (2009)
      We investigated the occurrence and intra-allelic variability of the T(-13910) variant located upstream of the lactase gene in 965 individuals from 20 different locations of Italy and Greece. The T(-13910) frequency ranges ...
