Abstract

Seventeen autosomal STRs were analyzed (D2S1338, D3S1358, D5S818, D7S820, D8S1179, D13S317, D16S539, D18S51, D19S433, D21S11, CSF1PO, FGA, TH01, TPOX, vWA, Penta D, and Penta E) in the Lebanese population. A total of 192 unrelated individuals were genotyped for the 15 autosomal STRs in the Promega PowerPlex 16 STR kit. An additional 275 unrelated individuals were genotyped for the Applied Biosystems AmpFlSTR Identifiler and SGM. +. STR kits. Allele frequencies for the shared CODIS 13 loci among the three STR kits tested were not significantly different among individuals within the Lebanese population. Forensic and population genetic parameters for the 17 loci were calculated. We also compared the allele frequencies from this population with other populations in the same geographic vicinity.
