Y-chromosome short tandem repeats (Y-STRs) are genetic markers with practical applications in human identification and population studies. Here we present the allelic and haplotype frequencies of 8 Y-STR loci most commonly used in forensic medicine in 103 unrelated native males of Isfahan province, central part of Iran. The cases were selected on the basis of strict criteria to assure pure native populations of Isfahan origin. DNA extracted from peripheral blood samples and PCR amplified for each marker. Y-specific STR loci DYS19, DYS385, DYS389I, DYS389II, DYS390, DYS391, DYS392 and DYS393 were included in this study. The most common alleles for each locus were: DYS19, allele 12; DYS385, allele 12; DYS389I, allele 13; DYS389II, allele 29; DYS390, allele 24; DYS391, allele 10; DYS392, allele 11; and DYS393, allele 13. Gene diversity value was calculated from the allelic frequency for each locus. The average gene diversity was 0.6518. A total of 101 haplotypes were observed in eight Y-specific STR loci, the haplotype diversity was raised to 0.986. The results revealed that a set of eight Y-specific STR loci were able to discriminate most of the male individuals in the population studied. A search through the Y Haplotype Referenc...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Head And Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinomas account for >90% of all tumors in the head and neck region. Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma incidence has increased dramatically recently with little improvement in patient outcomes. Here is the latest research on this aggressive malignancy.
