SNPs for Ethnicity Analysis


Stanford Reference:

97-248


Abstract


Stanford researchers have identified a patented set of Y chromosome SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms) for determining ethnic origin. The genome of an individual is unique to that individual and can be used for identification purposes. Procedures for such identification have been developed and are based on characterization of changes in an individual’s DNA, referred to as DNA polymorphisms. The SNPs described by this technology are from the non-recombining portion of the Y chromosome and can be used for a variety of purposes including genealogy analysis and DNA forensics.

Applications


  • DNA ethnicity analysis for:
    • genealogy studies
    • initial filtering in DNA forensics
    • paternity/sibling/DNA identity testing

Advantages


  • Low cost, easy to genotype
  • Readily amplified via PCR
