Abstract
Abstract Allele frequency distribution of 15 short tandem repeat (STR) loci (D8S1179, D21S11, D7S820, CSF1PO, D3S1358, TH01, D13S317, D16S539, D2S1338, D19S433, vWA, TPOX, D18S51, D5S818, and FGA) was studied in a sample of 120 unrelated native Qatari population using the AmpF I STR ® Identifiler kit (Applied Biosystems, Foster city, CA, USA). All loci met Hardy–Weinberg expectations and there was no evidence for linkage disequilibrium between any of the marker pairs. The most discriminating locus was D2S1338 with a power of discrimination (PD) of 0.969, while the lowest one was TPOX, yet with a PD of 0.821. For all the 15 loci, the combined PD and the combined ...
