Maesschalck et al. 2005

Abstract
Allele frequencies and haplotypes for 12 Y-chromosomal STR loci included in the Powerplex® System (Promega, Madison, USA) were determined in a sample of 113 unrelated males of Belgian origin. Ninety-nine different haplotypes were observed with an overall haplotype diversity of 0.997.
