Allele Frequencies and Statistical Parameters for Eight STR Loci in Córdoba (Argentina) Population
EDTA whole blood samples were collected from above 300 unrelated individuals of urban and countryside population of Cordoba (Argentina) to study loci TH01, TPOX, CSF1PO, FESFPS, F13A01. The sample set for loci D16S530, FABP, and D6S366 were 117, 192, and 171 individuals respectively. DNA was obtained by CTAB treatment, chloroform extraction, and ethanol precipitation (1). Loci CSF1PO, TH01, TPOX, FESFPS and F13A01, were amplified using either homemade PCR or GenePrint STR Multiplex Systems CTT and FFV (Promega Corporation, Madison WI). The homemade PCRs were performed using standard protocols (2–4). Either CTT and FFv GenePrint STR Multiplex Systems, and GenePrint Silver STR III for locus D16S539, were used according to the manufacturer's instructions (5).
