Mitochondrial DNA control region population data from Macedonia

Zimmermann,B.; Brandstatter,A.; Duftner,N.; Niederwieser,D.; Spiroski,M.; Arsov,T.; Parson,W.
Mitochondrial DNA sequences of the entire control region were analyzed in 200 unrelated individuals from Macedonia. A total of 163 different haplotypes were found as determined by 177 polymorphic sites. The probability of a random match was calculated as 1:121 (0.83%). The basic phylogenetic structure of the Macedonian population as derived from its haplogroup distribution is in agreement with other West-Eurasian populations. Upon publication, the population data are going to be available in the EMPOP database (www.empop.org) [W. Parson, A. Dur, EMPOP--a forensic mtDNA database, FSI:Genetics 1 (2) (2007) 88-92; W.
