Fixed Bin Population Data for the VNTR Loci D1S7, D2S44, D4S139, D5S110, D10S28, and D14S13 in a Population Sample from Rio De Janeiro, Brazil
Fixed bin frequencies for the VNTR loci D1S7, D2S44, D4S139, D5S110, D10S28, and D14S13 were determined in a Rio de Janeiro sample population. The data were generated by RFLP analysis of HaeIII-digested genomic DNA and chemiluminescent detection. The six VNTR loci meet Hardy-Weinberg expectations, and there is no evidence for association of alleles between the VNTR loci. The frequency data can be used in forensic analyses and paternity tests to estimate the frequency of a DNA profile in the general Brazilian population.
