    Abstract

    The Short Tandem Repeats (STRs) D3S1358, HUMvWA31/A, HUMFIBRA/FGA, D8S1179, D21S11, D18S51, D5S818, D13S317, and D7S820 were studied in two Brazilian populations (from Amazonia and S. Paulo) using the “AmpF1 STR Profiler Plus PCR Amplification Kit.” The nine loci showed a combined discrimination power greater than 0.9999999999 and a chance of exclusion of 0.9999.
