Data for Y-chromosome haplotypes defined by 17 STRs (AmpFLSTR® Yfiler™) in two Tunisian Berber communities

Abstract:

The 17 Y-chromosomal short tandem repeats (STRs) included in the AmpFLSTR ® Yfiler™ PCR Amplification Kit (AB Applied Biosystems) (DYS19, DYS389I, DYS389II, DYS390, DYS391, DYS392, DYS393, DYS385, DYS437, DYS438, DYS439, DYS448, DYS456, DYS458, DYS635 and GATA H4) were typed in two Berber communities, a small village (Takrouna) and a town (Sejenane), from North Tunisia. As expected, diversity was higher in the town, even when compared with a pool of three small Berber communities, probably due to the combination of different founder effects and genetic drifts operating in the small villages.
