    Abstract

    In order to assess the utility of mtDNA typing for forensic purposes in Uruguay, a population sample of 120 maternally unrelated individuals were amplified and directly sequenced for the HV1 and for the HV2 segments in the control region of the human mtDNA, following previous international recommendations (1).
