Genetic data on 16 X-chromosomal STR loci in three population samples from China

Published:October 18, 2016DOI:
      The Han, Uighur, and Tibetan are three of fifty-six ethnic groups of Chinese population, who lives in different areas of China. Since a number of large-scale migrations during the long history, Han is the most widely distributed ethnic group in China, who has a population of more than 1.2 billion at the 2010 census. Uighur and Tibetan are relatively bigger ethnic minorities, most of the former live in Xinjiang province, and the latter live in Qinghai and Tibet.
