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 ...
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 ...
Linguistic, geographic and genetic isolation: A collaborative study of italian populations
The animal and plant biodiversity of the Italian territory is known to be one of the richest in the Mediterranean basin and Europe as a whole, but does the genetic diversity of extant human populations show a comparable ...
