Abstract

Allele frequency data for the STR systems D3S1358, TH01, D21S11, D18S51, PENTAE, D5S818, D13S317, D7S820, D16S539, CSF1PO, PENTAD, VWA, D8S1179, TPOX, and FGA were determined in two population samples of unrelated, healthy Tibetan individuals. All loci met Hardy-Weinberg expectations, and there was no evidence of association of alleles among the 15 loci. These findings suggest that these STR loci could be particularly powerful tools in forensic medicine and could provide the necessary fundamental population genetic data for the reconstruction of recent human evolutionary history.
