Analysis of 17 STR loci in different provinces of Argentina.

Author information

  • 1LIDMO-Independencia 644, 4A-5000 Córdoba, Argentina.


The allelic distribution of seventeen short tandem repeat (STR) loci, together with some parameters of forensic interest were estimated from a sample set of unrelated healthy individuals from six provinces in Argentina (Buenos Aires, Córdoba, Santa Fe, Salta, Entre Ríos and Chaco). All loci of the sample were in agreement with Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium, after Bonferroni correction. The combined discrimination power for these 17 STRs was 0.999999999999999999997, whereas the combined probability of exclusion was 0.99999993. Furthermore, this population was compared to other previously published samples from Argentina, showing significant values in the population differentiation tests.
