Population Data


Allelic frequencies for 15 STR autosomal loci, using AmpFℓSTR® Identifiler™, forensic, and statistical parameters were calculated. All loci reached the Hardy–Weinberg equilibrium. The combined power of discrimination and mean power of exclusion were 0.999999999999999999 and 0.9999993, respectively. The MDS plot and NJ tree analysis, generated by FST matrix, corroborated the notion of the origins of the Paraná population as mainly European-derived. The combination of these 15 STR loci represents a powerful strategy for individual identification and parentage analyses for the Paraná population.
