Genetic analysis of 17 Y-STR loci from 1026 individuals of Han populations in Jilin Province, Northeast China
In this study, 17 Y-chromosomal short tandem repeats (Y-STRs) were analyzed in 1026 male individuals of Han populations in Changchun City, Jilin Province, Northeast China. The haplotype diversity is 0.99892. The Changchun Han population is close to most Han populations and different from most other minority populations of China. Additionally, the Changchun Han show more affiliations with Han populations in North and Northeast China. These data provide a reference for the Y-STR database in Jilin Province, and they may be valuable for population genetic analysis.
