A total of 853 samples from the four major U.S. population groups (African American, Asian, Caucasian, and Hispanic) were typed using the Qiagen® Investigator Argus X-12 kit. Allele frequency distributions are reported here for each of the 12 X-STR markers (DXS10103, DXS8378, DXS7132, DXS10134, DXS10074, DXS10101, DXS10135, DXS7423, DXS10146, DXS10079, DXS10148, and HPRTB).
