Population genetics for Y-STRs haplotypes of Chinese Ewenki ethnic minority group

Zhu et al. 2005

Abstract

Chinese Ewenki ethnic minority group, with a population of 26,300 in a statistical survey conducted in 2000, has a lifestyle of nomad, and is distributed across seven counties in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region and in Nahe County of Heilongjiang Province of China. The Ewenki people have no written script but a spoken language with three dialects belonging to the Manchu-Tungusic group of the Altai language family. Raising reindeers is the key livelihood of Ewenkis.

Y-STRs haplotypes of Chinese Mongol ethnic group

Zhu et al. 2005

Abstract

Eleven Y-chromosome STR loci (DYS19, DYS389I, DYS389II, DYS390, DYS391, DYS392, DYS393, DYS385a,b, DYS438, DYS439) have been co-amplified in 96 healthy unrelated males of Chinese Mongol ethnic group, in order to investigate allele and haplotype frequencies of them, evaluate their usefulness in forensic casework.

Genetic polymorphisms for 11 Y-STRs haplotypes of Chinese Yi ethnic minority group

Zhu et al. 2006

Abstract

Eleven Y-STRs loci including minimal haplotypes (DYS19, DYS389I, DYS389II, DYS390, DYS391, DYS392, DYS393, and DYS385a,b) and two additional loci, namely DYS438 and DYS439 have been co-amplified in 100 healthy unrelated males of Chinese Yi minority ethnic group using the Y-PLEX™ 5 and Y-PLEX™ 6 kit, in order to investigate allele and haplotype frequencies of Yi population, evaluate their usefulness in forensic paternity testing and human identification, and enrich Chinese population genetic informational resources. Out of a total of 100 individuals 85 showed different haplotypes, while 8 haplotypes occurred more than once. The overall haplotype diversity for 11 Y-STRs loci was 0.9945.
