Y chromosome haplotypes in Central-South Italy

An upcoming release of population data in Forensic Science International may be worth a look.

The abstract:
One hundred and fifty individuals have been sampled across Central-South Italy and genotyped for Y chromosome STRs by PowerPlex® Y system. Comparison with previous Italian databases revealed that majority of Y chromosome variation still need to be sampled. Identification of locus duplications, distribution of genetic variation and firstly identified alleles point to the necessity of more focused sampling strategies for reference databases.
I'll post more if it looks interesting after I've seen the whole article.
