Haplotype data for 17 Y-STR loci in the population of Himachal Pradesh, India
We report here the data of Y chromosome haplotypes of 259 unrelated males from the population of Himachal Pradesh, India, using the Yfiler® multiplex kit. A total of 188 haplotypes were detected, out of which 148 were unique. Three samples showed bi-allelic pattern on locus DYS448. The observed genetic diversity and discrimination capacity were 0.996 and 0.73, respectively. In order to compare the genetic distance of the studied population with the published populations, multidimensional scaling (MDS) plot was constructed. The reported data is expected to be valuable for both forensic and population genetics.
