We established a data set of 17 Y-STRs of 261 males from the Tyrolean district of Reutte. In total we observed 228 different haplotypes, 203 of which were unique and 25 occurred between two and four times. The haplotype diversity was 0.9987 and the discrimination capacity was 0.8736. Further, samples were typed with a selection of 19 Y-SNPs to establish the haplogroup background. Data are available in the Y chromosome haplotype reference database under accession number YA003715.

We would like to thank all voluntary blood donors. The staff of the Central Institute for Blood Transfusion and Immunological Department (Landeskrankenhaus Innsbruck) is acknowledged for organizing the blood collection campaign. We would also like to thank Stefan Troger (Institute of Legal Medicine, Innsbruck Medical University) who programmed and maintained the in-house Y-STR and SNP database. Hannelore Volderauer (Institute of Legal Medicine, Innsbruck Medical University) is acknowledged for the administration and sample management. We are grateful to Michaela Fahlenbock, Elisabeth Dietrich-Daum, and Wolfgang Meixner (Institut für Geschichtswissenschaften und Europäische Ethnologien, Universität Innsbruck) for their discussion.
