Allele frequencies and haplotypes for 12 Y-chromosome STR loci (DYS19, DYS385a/b, DYS389I, DYS389II, DYS390, DYS391, DYS392, DYS393, DYS437, DYS438 and DYS439), included in the PowerPlex Y multiplex kit, were determined for a Swiss population sample of 150 male individuals. The gene diversities for the different loci were in the same range as shown for other European Population samples. The haplotype diversity was 0.9922. Pairwise haplotype analysis showed no significant differences in comparison with other European Population samples.
