Population data of 15 STR loci of Chinese Yi ethnic minority group.Leg Med (Tokyo). 2008 Jul; 10(4):220-4.LM
Allele frequency data and statistical parameters for D8S1179, D21S11, D7S820, CSF1PO, D3S1358, TH01, D13S317, D16S539, D2S1338, D19S433, vWA, TPOX, D18S51, D5S818 and FGA loci were determined in a sample of 120 healthy unrelated individuals of Chinese Yi ethnic minority group living in Yunnan province, China. We observed 132 alleles with allelic frequencies ranging from 0.0042 to 0.5333. The forensic statistical parameters from the data of all the loci showed high values. All loci were in accordance with Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium (p>0.05). The obtained frequency distributions were compared with previously published other population data, and significant differences were found between Yi population and Korean, Chinese Tibetan, Uigur, Ewenki, Han, Hui population at some STR loci. Our results of present study were valuable for forensic application and Chinese population genetic studies. These population data enriched Chinese genetic informational resources.
