Allele Frequencies for Three STR Loci in Turkish Population of Kosovo

CODEN: JFSCAS

Abstract

Blood samples were collected from unrelated individuals who claim to have Turkish origin and speak the Turkish language in Kosovo. We analyzed blood samples of volunteer individuals. 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-03.htm.
