Population Data


Allele frequencies for those short tandem repeats (STRs) used in forensic routine analysis are necessary for any biostatistical calculation. In this study, allele frequencies for the STRs of the Powerplex ESX® kit including the five STRs D1S1656, D2S441, D10S1248, D12S391 and D22S1045 only recently added to the German database standard in an admixed population from Turkey are presented.
