Allele frequencies and population data for 17 Y-chromosome STR loci in a Serbian population sample from Vojvodina
I am not sure if everyone is in the yahoo group yet.Thoughts on
samples 3 and 4?

Seventeen Y-chromosomal STR (short tandem repeat) loci were analyzed
in a group of 185 healthy unrelated male individuals (n = 185) from
the population of Serbian province of Vojvodina. After minimal
haplotype STR loci analysis we observed 129 different haplotypes. The
most frequent haplotype was found in 13 copies, and total haplotype
diversity was 99.11%.
After analysis of additional eight Y-STR loci (DYS437, DYS438, DYS439,
DYS448, DYS456, DYS458, DYS635 and YGATAH4) there were 176 different
haplotypes observed, out of which 168 appeared in single copies, and 7
haplotypes appeared twice. The most frequent haplotype was found in
three copies. The haplotype diversity (99.94%) and discrimination
capacity (95.13%) were calculated.
Comparisons were made with previously published haplotype data on
neighbouring population samples and significant differences were
demonstrated at DYS19, DYS389II and DYS393 loci. Pairwise comparison
of populations revealed that our sample was significantly different
only from Hungarian sample (RST = 23.98%, p = 0.0091).
