abstract
Alu sequences are a type of short interspersed elements (SINEs) and have become an abundant feature in primate genomes, with numbers reaching over one million copies. Given that some families of Alu’s, including the ALU-Y group, are still polymorphic within the human genome, light can be shed on the migration patterns of humans as they have populated different regions. A specific Alu insert at the pv92 locus was amplified for ten distinct human groups totaling ninety five individuals. Statistically significant variation between some groups was found in Alu insertion frequencies for this locus. The Alu SINE’s provide a simple way for diverse fields of biology to gain deeper understanding of both primate and human descent and association to particular reproductively isolated groups.
