Kashmiris phylogenetic depictions through uniparental and biparental genetic markers
In this study, the Kashmiri population was genetically screened for fifteen autosomal STRs, seventeen Y-chromosomal STRs and mitochondrial DNA control region SNPs. Autosomal STRs exhibited that D2S1338 was the most discriminatory locus with value of 0.963 whereas combine power of discrimination was 0.999999999999999. On the other hand, analysis of Y-chromosomal STRs generated 59 distinct haplotypes of which 52 were unique with haplotype diversity value of 0.99752. Mitochondrial D-loop analysis resulted that haplogroups M and U were found most prevalent with 25% each. Haplotypic data of Y-STRs was submitted to YHRD under accession number YA004153 whereas mitochondrial DNA control region (CR) sequences were submitted to EMPOP with accession number EMP00683.
