Analysis of Y chromosome Y-STRs has proven to be a useful tool in the field
f population genetics, especially in the case of closely related
opulations. We collected DNA samples from 169 males of Czech origin, 80
ales of Slovakian origin, and 142 males dwelling Northern Poland. We
erformed Y-STR analysis of 12 loci in the samples collected (PowerPlex Y
ystem from Promega) and compared the Y chromosome haplotype frequencies
etween the populations investigated. Also, we used Y-STR data available
rom the literature for comparison purposes. We observed significant
ifferences between Y chromosome pools of Czechs and Slovaks compared to
ther Slavic and European populations. At the same time we were able to
oint to a specific group of Y-STR haplotypes belonging to an R1a haplogroup
hat seems to be shared by Slavic populations dwelling in Central Europe.
he observed Y chromosome diversity may be explained by taking into
onsideration archeological and historical data regarding early Slav
