Genetic Diversity in the Lesser Antilles and Its Implications for the Settlement of the Caribbean Basin

PLoS One
PMCID: 4598113
PMID: 26447794
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0139192

[…] enetic relationships among Y-chromosomes from indigenous Caribbean and South American populations. In the MJ network analysis, each Y-STR locus was weighed according to its mutation rate as listed in STRBase [], with slower rates given more weight than those with faster rates. In the coalescence analysis, we used an evolutionary mutation rate (EMR) of 2.8 x10-5 mutations per locus per year [], one […]


Novel Y chromosome Short Tandem Repeat Variants Detected Through the Use of Massively Parallel Sequencing

PMCID: 4610967

[…] s/molecular-and-medical-genetics/laboratory-faculty-and-staff/strait-razor/). These unique sequences then were compared to the known sequences for those alleles that have been previously published in STRBase ( and and the literature .Y-STR haplogroups were predicted from the repeat lengths (i.e., operationall […]


Fabry disease: Evidence for a regional founder effect of the GLA gene mutation 30delG in Brazilian patients

PMCID: 5121364

DOI: 10.1016/j.ymgmr.2014.09.002

[…] Primers were designed using PRIMER3 and AUTO DIMER CHECK software ( and ( The sequences of each primer, the concentrations used in the multiplex, marked fluorochromes (dye-labeling), and the size variation of each amplicon are presented in .Ampli […]


The nucleic acid revolution continues – will forensic biology become forensic molecular biology?

Front Genet
PMCID: 3942684
PMID: 24634675
DOI: 10.3389/fgene.2014.00044

[…] tandem repeats (STRs) by multiplex PCR, followed by capillary electrophoresis. See for example and the website of the National Institute of Standards and Technology ( for an extensive (but by no means complete) catalog of available markers. Furthermore, these relatively stable DNA markers are transmitted by classical Mendelian genetics, which […]
