Genetic data on 17 STR autosomal loci for a sample population of the State of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Published:October 13, 2014DOI:
      We determined allele frequencies for 17 autosomal loci: CSF1PO, FGA, TH01, TPOX, vWA, D3S1358, D5S818, D7S820, D8S1179, D13S317, D16S539, D18S51, D21S11, D2S1338, D19S433, Penta D, Penta E. For this purpose, buccal swabs or blood samples were collected from 504 unrelated individuals who, from 2008 to 2011, donated biological material to IPPGF (Instituto de Pesquisa e Perícias em Genética Forense), the State Police DNA Laboratory in charge of performing genetic identification in Rio de Janeiro State criminal cases. All participants signed informed consent prior to the inclusion in the study, according to the Ethical Committee Approval. The laboratory participated and succeeded in the proficiency testing of the GITAD.
