The Spanish population data represent 401 DNA samples from unrelated individuals from all over the Kingdom of Spain, its official title ( Samples were provided by a) the Laboratory of Criminalistics – Criminal Investigation Command, in the Spanish capital of Madrid, b) the Laboratory of  Genetic Identification in the Dept. of Legal Medicine at Spain’s University of Granada, and c) the FBI Laboratory at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Va.
