Allele frequency data at 15 short tandem repeat loci, D8S1179, D21S11, D7S820, CSF1PO, D3S1358, THO1, D13S317, D16S539, D2S1338, D19S433, VWA, TPOX, D18S51, D5S818 and FGA have been determined for unrelated individuals in a population sample of Iranian Fars individuals. With exception of the D13S317 (P-value=0.0458) and TPOX (P-value=0.0477), no deviation from HWE were found in the study population using the exact test. The most discriminating loci were FGA (PD=0.965) and D2S1338 (PD=0.964). These data can be used for estimating the frequency of short tandem repeat profiles in a population of Fars province individuals.
