Abstract

Significant genetic variation in populations can occur as a result of differential gene flow from neighboring populations. In a sociological study of people living in Turkey, 47 different ethnic groups are listed (Andrews, 1989). The present study aims to compare three of them -Sunni Turks, Laz Turks and Hemşinli- with each other.
