Population Data for the STR Systems D3S1358, D8S1179, D18S51, D21S11, and the Y-Chromosomal DYS385 in a Population Sample from Lower Franconia (South Germany)
Whole liquid blood was obtained from unrelated individuals. DNA extraction was performed using a salting out procedure (1). PCR was carried out for D3S1358, D8S1179, D18S51 (2), D21S11 (3), and DYS385 (4) with 5 ng of DNA each. The PCR products were separated using an ABI 310 automated sequencer (Applied Biosystems, Foster City, CA). Power of discrimination was calculated for all examined populations (5). For the autosomal STR-loci heterozygosity value (6) and chance of exclusion (7) were calculated. No significant deviations from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium were found in the autosomal STR systems using x2-analysis (P > 0.05). The whole dataset can be downloaded in Microsoft Excel 98 format from http://www.uni-wuerzburg.de/rechtsmedizin/populationsdaten.
