Within a study of the genetics of Balkan populations, four DNA-STR systems and 19
classical markers were examined in seven samples: Romanians (two groups), Albanians,
Greeks and Aromuns (three groups). The results for the DNA-STR systems have been
compared with data from the literature. The results show four clear separated groups:
sub-Saharan black populations, North-African, Japanese and European populations.
The large Balkan populations, except the Greek sample, are genetically more homogenous
than the Aromun populations. A second Neighbor-joining tree based on all 23 analyzed
systems, show a particular trend of the Aromun groups, which indicates a particular
genetic structure.
