This article presents a new interface in the ALFRED database to access compendia of allele frequencies for several published panels of markers for forensic uses.
The potential value of SNPs for individual identification has been recognized by many researchers and different panels have been proposed. Here the authors present a new interface in the ALFRED database to access compendia of allele frequencies for several published panels of markers for forensic uses. One of those is the authors' panel of individual identification SNPs (IISNPs) based on samples of 44 populations originating from many parts of the world. This article also presents additional data and additional statistical analyses that continue to support the value of the panel of IISNPs as a universal panel. This article also describes initial developments of multiplex methods and various robustness analyses for the authors' 45 marker IISNP panel. (Published Abstract)
