They suggest DYS385*13-16 if (a & b sections) amplified together, and
DYS385a*13 and DYS385b*16 if (a & b sections) amplified separately
(i.e., Kittler test, Eur. J. Hum. Genet. (2003) 11:304-314). This is
the way DNA Finger-print had it except DYS385 was shown in the YMatch
instead of DYS385* ....
