Mitochondrial control region (16024-576) sequences were generated from 381 Kuwaiti samples. Previously, these samples were typed with the AmpFℓSTR® Identifiler® kit (Applied Biosystems, Foster City, California) [1]. Automated high throughput lab processing combined with a redundant sequencing strategy and multiple reviews of the raw electropherograms ensure the high quality of these sequences and their utility as reference population data for Kuwait.
