We have analyzed 113 confirmed and unrelated father-son pairs from Andaluc’ia and Extremadura (Southern and Southwestern Spain) for the 17 Y-chromosome microsatellite loci included in the AmpFlSTR® Yfiler® PCR amplification kit (Applied Biosystems). Among the 113 sons, 111 different haplotypes were observed of which 109 were unique. Out of the 1920 allele transfers studied, three single-step mutations between father and son were detected (overall mutation rate: 1.563 ?10-3; 95% CI, 0.322 ?10-3 to 4.559 ?10-3) which is in agreement with previous reported data. These results will be part of a collaborative work carried out by the Spanish and Portuguese ISFG Working Group (GEP-ISFG).
