Abstract

The incidence of rare or uncommon genetic variants, including some population specific markers are difficult to assess due to small sample sizes generally reported. Such markers and the respective gene frequencies are of considerable value in parentage testing and as evidence in criminal investigations. For this study we have accumulated genetic data on the following marker systems markers GC, BF, F13A, F13B, HP, PLG, TF, ACP1, and PGM1 from local white and black populations. Gene frequencies are presented using large sample sizes which provided data on 160 alleles, 32 new variants and 15 population specific markers.
