    ABSTRACT: Abstract Background: In view of their high level of variability, autosomal short tandem repeats (STRs) are very useful as markers in the disciplines of forensic and population genetics studies. Aim: To investigate the diversity distributions of allelic frequencies of 15 loci from a sample from the Chinese Xibe ethnic group in Liaoning. Subjects and methods: Fifteen STR loci for 150 unrelated Xibe individuals from Liaoning, China were amplified simultaneously in a fluorescence-based reaction using a 2720 Thermal cycler (ABI). Separation and detection of the amplified product were conducted with the Li-COR 4300 DNA Analyzer. Results: In total, 117 alleles were observed, with the corresponding allele frequencies ranging from 0.001 to 0.507. D18S51 had the highest polymorphism (PIC = 0.840) among all 15 STR loci, whereas TPOX had the lowest (PIC = 0.590). The power of discrimination ranged from 0.801 for TH01 locus to 0.957 for D18S51 locus, whereas the power of exclusion ranged from a minimum 0.316 for TPOX locus to a maximum 0.720 for D21S11 locus. The phylogenetic tree established among worldwide populations showed that the Xibe population is far from other populations. Conclusion: Databases for the 15 STR loci will be useful for personal identification and paternity tests in the Xibe population and for the establishment of phylogenetic relationships between populations.

    ABSTRACT: Genetic polymorphis Technologies, USA) was studied in 595 unrelated Bangladeshi Bangali individuals. All the loi reached Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium after Bonferroni's correction (p > 0.0033) [1]. Allele frequency and forensic efficiency parameters like, observed and expected heterozygosity (Ho and He), power of discrimination (PD), power of exclusion (PE), were studied for these loci. The PE for all 15 loci tested were calculated to be 0.9999992. This study demonstrated that the STR loci included in AmpFlSTR Identifiler are suitable for forensic paternity testing and human identification in bangladeshi population.

    ABSTRACT: The aim of this study was to estimate the allelic frequencies of the 19 STR loci with the Goldeneye™ DNA ID system 20A kit in a sample of 150 Manchu individuals from China to be used for forensic purposes and population studies. The observed heterozygosity(HO)values of these 19 STR loci ranged from 0.600 (D3S1358) to 0.914 (D18S51), the expected (HE) ranged from 0.615 (TPOX) to 0.876 (D16S1043). The power of discrimination (PD) values were found to range from 0.793 (TPOX) to 0.950 (D16S1043) and the probability of exclusion (PE) varies between 0.291 (D3S1358) and 0.825 (D18S51 and Penta E ). Among all the 19 loci, D16S1043 had the highest polymorphism (PIC=0.860), whereas TPOX had the lowest (PIC=0.550). For the 19 loci, the combined power of discrimination and the combined probability of exclusion are 0.9999999999999999999942 and 0.999999996777, respectively. The phylogenetic tree established among worldwide populations shows different populations who say the same language usually have a close genetic relationship with each other across the three language families studied (Sino-Tibetan, Altaic and Arabic).
