Polymorphism analysis of 15 STR loci in a large sample of the Han population in southern China


      We have conducted genotyping experiments on 15 STR loci in over 5000 unrelated individuals of the Han population in Southern China. The loci are D31358, TH01, D21S11, D18S51, Penta E, D5S818, D13S317, D7S820, D16S539, CSF1PO, Penta D, vWA, D8S1179, TPOX and FGA. Our statistic analysis indicates that the 15 STR loci conform to the Hardy–Weinberg's equilibrium (p > 0.05). We also report here the heterozygosity, matching probability, power of discrimination, probability of exclusion, polymorphism information content and typical paternity index for each locus. The results indicate that these loci are highly polymorphic in the Han population in Southern China.
