Multiplex SNP Assay on the Ancient Human Samples from JDHSC

We started the work on multiplex SNP assay on the samples from Joseon Dynasty Human Sample Collection (JDHSC). By the analysis of SNPs in the male-specific region of the Y-chromosome (MSY), we could get the fundamental information helpful for understanding the origin and history of Korean people which will be inferred by our forthcoming studies.
