X-STR analysis is a powerful tool in both phylogeny reconstruction and forensic investigation. Hereby, we provide new population data concerning 15 X-STR loci (included in commercially available typing kit Mentype Argus X-8 (Biotype AG, Dresden, Germany) (DXS10135, DXS8378, DXS7132, DXS10074, HPRTB, DXS10101, DXS10134 and DXS7423) and another seven (DXS6807, DXS9898, DXS101, DXS7424, DXS7133, DXS8377 and DXS10011) that were previously described by Poetsch et al. [1] obtained from a sample of 311 individuals from Poland and compared to the results previously obtained from other populations of European, Asian and African origin [2-4]. Numerous experiments seem to prove that X-STRs are valuable markers for human identification, kinship testing and even phylogenetic research - thus serving as a complement for autosomal microsatellites, Y-STRs and mtDNA [5-7].
