Abstract

The highly polymorphic locus D1S80 is the most investigated and used AMP-FLP system in the field of the molecular identification. This is, due in part, to the moderate to high number of alleles (25), the frequency distribution of the alleles, and even amplification of alleles in most samples, inspite of the considerable fragment length differences that range from 401 to 801 bp. Optimization of amplification protocols and amplicon detection systems has yielded high reproducibility of results, fullfiling basic requirements for forensic case work. Since a large number of studies have been performed in distantly located populations around the world, a great deal of genetic information, concerning this locus, is available for comparison.
