Mountain-valleys preset migration routes and define highly structured areas of human settlement. This is likely to result in the formation of complex genetic patterns, reflecting the influence of the landscape’s topology. Y-chromosomal data from studies with high geographic resolution are still in demand. In order to gain a better understanding of the genetic landscape of the male population living in Tyrol, we developed a minisequencing assay for the simultaneous analysis of 19 phylogenetically informative single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) on the human Y-chromosome.
