Sažetak

The Balkan Peninsula is known to represent a complex cultural mosaic and it is a strategic area because it represents
a gateway into Europe from the Near East. This research seeks to evaluate the variability of both uniparental markers
(mtDNA and non-recombining region of the Y chromosome) to dissect the genetic makeup of Serbians. The whole sample
pertains to 257 Serbians (87 from the central region and 170 from the southern area) who have been analyzed for both
uniparental genetic markers. The results showed that the extant inhabitants of the Balkan Peninsula have a homogeneous
genetic background, despite their linguistic and cultural differences. The obtained data were compared with those of
neighboring populations to detect possible relationships among groups. On the whole, the genetic variability of the Balkan
populations seems to be due to an admixture process of European and Asian lineages in different proportions whose contributions
constitute the current maternal and paternal genetic landscape.
