'Tyagi D, Bhatnager BR, Tewari PK, 1982: Brahmans and Their Diversity: A Genetical Approach Based on ABO Blood Group Distribution. Anthropologie (Brno) 20, 1: 7-11'.
The distribution of AB0 blood groups and their gene frequencies among the different groups of Brahmans of India indicate that intra-state Brahmans samples show homogenity and on the other hand the comparison (X2 test) between different geographical regions presents a confusing picture. Intra-state homogenity may be due to the fact that neighbouring populations would generally show more similar trend than the populations living at a distance. The conclusive answer to the proces of formation of sub-castes (sub-groups) is only possible after we have more data for various traits both genetical and morphological, from different parts of India.
