Frequency data for 12 mini STR loci in Argentina.Forensic Sci Int Genet. 2010 Apr; 4(3):e79-81.FS
Allele frequencies and forensic parameters for twelve miniSTR autosomal loci (D10S1248, D14S1434, D22S1045, D4S2364, D2S441, D1S1677, D20S480, D6S2439, D6S1056, D9S1118, D4S2639 and D17S1290) were calculated from a sample of 506 unrelated individuals from the Central-East Region of Argentina. No significant deviations from Hardy-Weinberg expectations were found. Furthermore, comparisons with other previously studied populations were made. These twelve miniSTR markers may help forensic laboratories in solving parentage testing as well as in typing degraded DNA samples.
