STR data for the AmpFlSTR Identifiler from Dobruja region (SE Romania)

Published:October 27, 2008DOI:


      Allele frequencies for 15 STR loci included in AmpFlSTR Identifiler kit (D8S1179, D21S11, D7S820, CSF1PO, D3S1358, TH01, D13S317, D16S539, D2S1338, D19S433, vWA, TPOX, D18S51, D5S818, and FGA) were determined in a sample of 569 unrelated individuals living in the region of Dobruja (SE Romania). No deviations from Hardy–Weinberg equilibrium were observed. Genetic parameters of forensic interest were calculated and comparison with geographically nearby populations was performed.
