    Abstract

    Access of the Data Via Electronic Mail From Communicating Author Genotype studies at highly polymorphic 15 STR loci were carried out in four major ethnic groups of Bihar, the second most populous state in the northeastern part of the Indian subcontinent. The communities included in the present analysis hold a special attraction for human genetic studies because they practice a high degree of endogamy at the community level and exogamy at the sub-population level (1). All the samples used in the study were collected from Bihar only. These population groups belong to upper strata of the Hindu Religion and to date no STR study has reported on them.
