Uralic haplotypes in Europe

According to a recent study, two European haplotypes, defined over (DYS19, DYS389I, DYS389II, DYS390, DYS391, DYS393) are associated in all but one cases with the Uralic haplogroup N3. These two haplotypes are: 14-14-16-23-11-14-14 and 14-14-16-24-11-14-14.

Searching yhrd, we can obtain the distribution of these haplotypes in Europe. The first haplotype is confined to Scandinavian, Baltic and some Slavic populations, but it is also present in two German samples, Hungary, Turks from Bulgaria, and Szekely (Hungarian origin) from Romania.

The second haplotype has a similar distribution in Scandinavian, Baltic and some Slavic populations, and occurs also in the Pyrenees and in a German sample.
