Allele frequency distribution of 21 forensic autosomal STRs in 7 populations from Yunnan, China


      This study examines the genotypes and allele frequency distributions of 21 forensic autosomal STRs for 7 populations from Yunnan province, China: Han (two different population samples, n = 48 and n = 59, respectively), Nu (n = 36), Tibetan (n = 31), Du Long (n = 24), Lisu (n = 25) and Yi (n = 24). Pairwise FST analysis shows (marginally) significant differences between some of the Yunnan populations, but not between the Yunnan populations and other population samples from China and surrounding countries.
