This article reports on a project that determined allele distributions for short tandem repeat (STR) loci in Caucasians, Southwestern Hispanics, Southeastern Hispanics, African-Americans, Bahamians, Jamaicans, Trinidadians, Chamorros, Filipinos, Apaches, and Navajos.
Abstract
The data are included in the FBI PopStats software for calculating statistical estimates of DNA typing results and cover the expanded CODIS Core STR Loci required of U.S. laboratories that participate in the National DNA Index System (NDIS). This project determined allele distributions for twenty-three autosomal short tandem repeat (STR) loci – D1S1656, D2S441, D2S1338, D3S1358, D5S818, D7S820, D8S1179, D10S1248, D12S391, D13S317, D16S539, D18S51, D19S433, D21S11, D22S1045, CSF1PO, FGA, Penta D, Penta E, SE33, TH01, TPOX and vWA – in Caucasians, Southwestern Hispanics, Southeastern Hispanics, African-Americans, Bahamians, Jamaicans, Trinidadians, Chamorros, Filipinos, Apaches, and Navajos. Results of population genetic analyses presented in this report support the usage of these loci and the associated allele frequencies for estimating match statistics in human identity testing.
