Abstract A set of seven STR-loci mapping on the male-specific region of the human Y chromosome (DYS19, DYS385, DYS389 I/II, DYS390, DYS391, DYS392, DYS393) were typed by means of two multiplex PCR reactions and capillary electrophoresis in a Romanian population sample of 104 unrelated males. Among the 97 different haplotypes observed, 92 were unique, while 5 occurred more than once. The observed haplotype diversity was 0.989.
