Besermyans are an ethnic group in the Volga-Ural region which speaks a language belonging to Finno-Ugric language family and which is close to Udmurt language but at the same time containing some Turkic traits. This group inhabiting North-West Udmurtia is very small and it has not been described in the terms of Y-chromosome haplogroups yet. We analyzed 53 individuals from Besermyan population using 12 Y-chromosome markers (M9, M89, YAP, M35, M130, 12f2, M170, M231, Tat, P43, M207, Page07) and found that Y-chromosome genetic pool of this ethnic group consists of haplogroups R1a1a-Page07, N1c-Tat, N1b-P43, I-M170, R1b1b-M269 and E1b1b1-M35. The majority of the Y-chromosome haplogroups in Besermyans is represented by N1c-Tat and R1a1a-Page07 lineages comprising 73,6% of all Y-chromosomes. The third leading haplogroup is N1b-P43 (13,2%) so the main share of the Y-chromosome lineages in Besermyan group is actually N-M231 (54,7%). In other words the main pattern of the Y-chromosome haplogroup distribution shows their relatedness to the Volga-Ural populations.
