The study was conducted to determine the polymorphism and extent of genetic diversity at 9 Short Tandem Repeat (STR) loci of Y-chromosome among the Khandayat Community of Odisha. Blood samples were collected from 91 unrelated healthy individuals and genomic DNA was extracted by Organic Method. The DNA samples were amplified by multiplex-PCR followed by genotyping. Genotyping results of the 9 Y-STRs showed that all loci included in this study are highly polymorphic among the Khandayat population.
