Argentinians (or Argentines) are a diverse nation of people inclusive not only of Italian and Spanish descendants but also Welsh, Irish, Jewish and other ethnicities.

There are 10 data sets that have been incorporated into DNA Consultants’ method.

1) Argentinian – Neuquén Province population data represent DNA samples from 111 people in the Neuquén Province, located at the north end of the Patatgonia Region. Samples were obtained by the Primer Centro Argentino de Immunogentica (PRICAI) -Fundación Favaloro [First Argentine Center of Immunogenetics – Favoloro Foundation] in Buenos Aires.

2) Argentinian – Patagonian – Rio Negro population data represent DNA samples from 593 people in the Province of Rio Negro, located in the northern Patagonia Region of the Argentine Republic, just above the coastal province of Chubut, with its eastern border along the Atlantic Ocean. Samples were obtained by the Servicio de Huellas Digitales Genéticas and Cátedra de Genética y Biología Molecular, Facultad de Farmacia y Bioquímica, Universidad de Buenos Aires. [The Digital Genetic Fingerprinting Service and the Chair of Genetics and Molecular Biology, for the Pharmacy and Biochemistry Faculty of the University of Buenos Aires].

3) Argentinian – Patagonian – Chubut population data represent DNA samples from 320 people in the Province of Chubut. Samples were obtained by the Servicio de Huellas Digitales Genéticas and Cátedra de Genética y Biología Molecular, Facultad de Farmacia y Bioquímica, Universidad de Buenos Aires. [The Digital Genetic Fingerprinting Service and the Chair of Genetics and Molecular Biology, for the Pharmacy and Biochemistry Faculty of the University of Buenos Aires].

4) Argentinian – Misiones population data represent 169 unrelated individuals from Misiones province who were sampled in 2005 by the University of Buenos Aires in Argentina.

5) Argentinian – Salta population data represent 83 unrelated individuals from Salta province who were sampled in 2005 by the University of Buenos Aires in Argentina. Salta is an Argentinian province in the mountainous northwest of the country. Before the Spanish conquest, numerous native peoples (now called Diaguitas and Calchaquíes) lived in the valleys of what is now Salta Province, and the Atacamas lived in the Puna.

6) Argentinian – Formosa population data represent 78 unrelated individuals living in Formosa province who were sampled in 2005 by the University of Buenos Aires in Argentina. Formosa is located in northeastern Argentina along the Paraguay border. Native inhabitants of these lands include the Pilagás, Wichis and Tobas, whose languages are still spoken in the province.

7) Argentinian – Chaco population data represent 56 unrelated individuals living in Chaco province who were sampled in 2005 by the University of Buenos Aires in Argentina. Chaco is located in northern Argentina along the Paraguay border.

8) Argentinian – Corrientes population data represent 43 unrelated individuals living in Corrientes province who were sampled in 2005 by the University of Buenos Aires in Argentina. Corrientes is a province of Argentina located in the northeastern corner of the Argentine Republic bordering Paraguay, Brazil, and Uruguay, in what is known as the Mesopotamian (Greek for “between two rivers”) region.  The native Guarani population is strong here, and in 2004 the Guarani language was declared official, making Corrientes the only Argentine province to recognize a second tongue, alongside of Spanish.

9) Argentinian – Santa Fe population data represent 562 unrelated individuals living in Santa Fe province in central Argentina. Samples — taken from forensic casework and for purposes of determining biological relationships– were obtained by the Servicio de Huellas Digitales Genéticas and Cátedra de Genética y Biología Molecular, Facultad de Farmacia y Bioquímica , Universidad de Buenos Aires. [The Digital Genetic Fingerprinting Service and the Chair of Genetics and Molecular Biology, for the Pharmacy and Biochemistry Faculty of the University of Buenos Aires].

10) Argentinian – Mendoza population data represent 290 unrelated individuals living in Mendoza province in the central Argentina region of Cuyo. Samples — taken from forensic casework and for purposes of determining biological relationships– were obtained by the Servicio de Huellas Digitales Genéticas and Cátedra de Genética y Biología Molecular, Facultad de Farmacia y Bioquímica , Universidad de Buenos Aires. [The Digital Genetic Fingerprinting Service and the Chair of Genetics and Molecular Biology, for the Pharmacy and Biochemistry Faculty of the University of Buenos Aires].
