Abstract

MiniSTR loci has demonstrated to be an effective approach to recover genetic information from degraded sample, due to the improved PCR efficiency of their reduced PCR product sizes. This study investigated the allele frequency of six miniSTR loci, D1S1677, D2S441, D4S2364, D10S1248, D14S1434 and D22S1045, in three Singapore populations. All loci showed a moderate degree of polymorphism with observed heterozygosity >0.6 for all three populations. The allele frequencies, forensic parameters and heterozygosity comparison with other CODIS STR in similar populations are presented.
