Genetic profile of 17 Y chromosome STRs in the Guizhou Han population of southwestern China

      Guizhou is a multinational state in China that has 49 ethnicities. There are 22 million Han people that only account for 69 percent of the total population. The Han population of Guizhou may have undergone some gene exchange with other minorities and may have genetic differences compared to other Han populations living in other regions of China. It is regrettable that there is a lack of data for the Han population in Guizhou.
