Fixed bin frequencies for the VNTR loci D1S7, D2S44, D4S139, D5S110, and D17S79 were determined in a Chinese sample population. The data were generated by RFLP analysis of Hae III-digested genomic DNA and chemiluminescence detection. The five VNTR loci meet Hardy-Weinberg expectations in the Chinese sample population, and there is little 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 Chinese.
