(in press). For several years, Y-chromosomal microsatellites (STRs) have become well-established in forensic practice. In this context, the unique genetic characteristics of the Y chromosome (i.e. its paternal inheritance and lack of recombination) render Y-STRs particularly powerful. Notably, genetic differences between male populations appear to be greater for Y-STRs compared to autosomal STRs that may be due to the sensitivity of Y-chromosomal lineages to genetic drift [5]. Assessment of match probabilities amongst males or traces/persons requires the analyses of a large number of haplotypes in reference populations. Haplotype data of a ( CONTINUATION )
