    Abstract

    Istanbul is the most densely populated city of Turkey, with approximately 16 million inhabitants. A local STR database for the population of the city of Istanbul was generated in this study. We analyzed blood samples of 311 volunteer individuals. Aiming to avoid forming a criminal subgroup, we selected from these people who had not committed any crime. DNA was extracted using Chelex 100 extraction method (1) and the typing was performed using the Gene print STR systems according to the manufacturer's instructions. The detection was done by silver staining. The statistical analysis revealed no significant deviation from Hardy Weinberg expectations. Parameters like observed and expected heterozygosity, power of exclusion and discrimination, probability of match, paternity index as well as a detailed comparison with various populations (2) are available at http://istanbul.edu.tr/enstituler/ forensic/popgen-01.htm.
