Genotype Profile for Fifteen Tetranucleotide Repeat Loci in Two Tibeto-Burman Speaking Tribal Populations of Arunachal Pradesh, India
Two Tibeto-Burman-speaking Adi tribal populations of Arunachal Pradesh, India, Adi Pasi (n=121) from Upper Siang district, and Adi Minyong (n=33) from East Siang district were analyzed for polymorphisms at 15 microsatellite loci. The populations belong to Mongoloid ethnicity and are of special significance in genetic studies due to their small population size, relative isolation in remote hilly areas, and traditional subsistence patterns.
