Are you looking for a particular kind of haplotype? Sometime in 2005 YHRD
upgraded their Danish population to about 260 haplotypes. Looking at the
"top 20" there are a number that appear multiple times. "Frisian" R1b with
23 ,11, 13, 13 at DYS390,391,392,393 appears perhaps 9 or 10 times in the
database and is #2 and #11 on
the list. Before this upgrade, all of Denmark used to be represented by
only 65 haplotypes in YHRD

This short communication apparently has been online since
February 2005, but a search of the list archives didn't
show that its abstract had been posted here. In a quick
scan of its tables, I see only one haplotype found three
times (23/10/11/13 for DYS 390/391/392/393); the rest were
found only once or twice. High gene diversity, as the
abstract states.

A total of 185 unrelated Danish males were typed for the
Y-chromosome STRs DYS19, DYS385a/b, DYS389-I, DYS389-II,
DYS390, DYS391, DYS392, DYS393, DYS437, DYS438 and DYS439
using the kits PowerPlex Y (Promega), ReliaGene Y-PlexT6
and ReliaGene Y-PlexT5 (Reliagene Technologies). A total of
163 different haplotypes were observed and among these, 144
haplotypes were unique. The gene diversity was 0.9985. In
DYS392, a variant allele migrating as a 10.2 allele was
observed. Sequencing of the allele showed a deletion
upstream the repeated area.
