Contributions to the YHRD

We have updated the requirements for first-submitters of population data to the YHRD. Please note that we have stopped sending QC samples, since Y-STR typing methods are sufficiently established and standardized. Please note that we now request original epg’s of positive and negative controls and allelic ladders of the kit. Please consult help pages for further information.
