More recently, forensic interest has focused on X-chromosomal markers and which are especially useful in paternity cases with daughters. Genetic polymorphism studies at 10 short tandem repeat (STR) loci on the X-chromosome (DXS6804, DXS6799, DXS8378, DXS7130, DXS7132, HPRTB, DXS7133, DXS7423, DXS101 and DXS6789) were carried out in Yunnan Nu population of China. We aimed at increase in pool of forensically relevant data for allele distribution and frequency of X-chromosomal STRs. Statistical analysis and forensic efficiency data show no deviations from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium.
