Abstract

The differences of values of allelic frequencies of Sardinians compared to those of the rest of Italy, which have been demonstrated for several polymorphisms, are due to the peculiar ethno-geographic situation of the island. The studies of the distribution of the genetic polymorphisms in Sardinia is interesting not only for the geneticist of population or the anthropologist, but it is useful also for the investigations about disputed paternity. This is because the use of the continental average gene frequencies, instead of the insular ones, may cause disparities, sometimes even significant ones, in the calculation of probability of paternity.
