STR Allele Frequencies
Allele frequency values were calculated for unrelated U.S. population samples (n=1036) at 29 autosomal STR loci in commercial STR multiplex kits. The observed heterozygosity values (Hobs), Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium p-value from exact test (HWE), probability of identity values (PI), and probability of paternity exclusion values (PPE) are listed for each marker.
Statistical values in this file were generated from the raw population data of 29 autosomal STR loci and 23 Y-STR loci allele calls for 1036 individuals comprising of African-American, Caucasian-American, Hispanic-American and Asian-American populations.
