Y-STR haplotype diversity and population data for Central Brazil: implications for environmental forensics and paternity testing

T. C. Vieira, Gigonzac, M. A. D., Silva, D. M., Rodovalho, R. G., Santos, G. S., and da Cruz, A. D., Y-STR haplotype diversity and population data for Central Brazil: implications for environmental forensics and paternity testing, vol. 13. pp. 3404-3410, 2014.

The central region of Brazil was colonized by internal migration of individuals of different origins, who contributed to the genetic diversity existing in this population. This study determined the allele frequencies and haplotype diversity of Y-STRs in Goiás State, Central Brazil, and compared the data obtained with a sample of the Brazilian population, consisting of individuals from the five geographical regions of Brazil. A total of 353 males were typed for 12 Y-chromosome short tandem repeat (Y-STR) markers.

Transferability of short tandem repeat markers for two wild Canid species inhabiting the Brazilian Cerrado

F. M. Rodrigues, Telles, M. P. C., Resende, L. V., Soares, T. N., Diniz-Filho, J. A. F., Jácomo, A. T. A., and Silveira, L., Transferability of short tandem repeat markers for two wild Canid species inhabiting the Brazilian Cerrado, vol. 5. pp. 846-850, 2006.

The maned wolf (Chrysocyon brachyurus) and the crab-eating fox (Cerdocyon thous) are two wild-canid species found in the Brazilian Cerrado. We tested cross-amplification and transferability of 29 short tandem repeat primers originally developed for cattle and domestic dogs and cats on 38 individuals of each of these two species, collected in the Emas National Park, which is the largest national park in the Cerrado region.
