Allele frequencies and forensic genetic parameters of 10 supplementary and two CODIS loci in a Japanese population genotyped using an Investigator HDplex Kit
A total of 344 unrelated Japanese adults were genotyped to determine allele frequencies and evaluate forensic parameters for 10 autosomal supplementary non-CODIS loci and 2 autosomal CODIS loci using an Investigator® HDplex Kit for complex relationship testing.
