Allele frequencies for 15 autosomal short tandem repeats core loci on U.S. Caucasian, African American, and Hispanic populations.

Description

Allele frequencies for 15 autosomal short tandem repeats loci on three American populations : Caucasians, African Americans and Hispanics. Among the 15 loci, 13 belong to the core Combined DNA Index System (CODIS) loci used by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (USA), in forensic DNA analysis, and two supplementary loci are more commonly used in Europe, see details.
