Population Data


We collected and analysed the autosomal STR data of 2040 unrelated Kinh individuals living in Vietnam. Allele frequencies and forensic parameters were calculated, showing high values for the combined powers of discrimination and exclusion. Phylogenetic analysis was performed to determine the genetic relationship of the Kinh population with other Asian populations.
