Allele frequencies for the 15 STR loci (D3S1358, TH01, D21S11, D18S51, Penta E, D5S818, D13S317, D7S820, D16S539, CSF1PO, Penta D, VWA, D8S1179, TPOX and FGA) were investigated using PowerPlex((R))16 amplification kit in a sample of 328 unrelated individuals from Islamic Republic of Pakistan. The allelic distributions were in Hardy Weinberg equilibrium for all loci except for the loci FGA, TPX and THO1. Various forensic indices were calculated and a comparison was made with geographically nearby populations.
