The article compares the Sorbian isolate population in Germany with the German KORA population by population genetic means and analysis the effects of oversampling of families in the Sorbs sample from effects of genetic isolation and compare the power of genetic association studies between the samples. It is found that Sorbs show signs of genetic isolation which cannot be explained by over-sampling of relatives and the Slavonic origin of the Sorbs is still genetically detectable.
