In this study, a sample of 144 persons lived in middle-Euphrates of Iraq population was
analyzed using 5 Y-chromosome short tandem repeat (STR) polymorphisms. This
population (n=144) was separated to two sub-population Hashemites (n=72) and
Commoners (Non- Hashemites) sub-population (n=72), in the commoners sub-population
the locus DYS19 was most polymorphic loci in number of alleles with the highest gene
diversity, while in Hashemites sub-population, the locus DYS19 and DYS392 were most
polymorphic loci in number of alleles and DYS391has the highest gene diversity. In study
of Y STR Haplotypes, it found 62 haplotypes in all populations 52 were unique
haplotypes, the Hashemites sub-population the number of haplotype was 27, the unique
haplotypes were 19, and in the commoners sub-population the number of haplotype was
35, the unique haplotypes were 33 haplotypes and has a highest haplotype diversity and
Discrimination Capacity.
