Genetic analysis and forensic evaluation of 47 autosomal InDel markers in four different Chinese populations
- 12 Downloads
This study aims to investigate the population-wide genetic data and forensic efficiency of 47 autosomal InDels in the four Chinese populations of Chinese Han, Tibetan, Uighur, and Chinese Hui. The allele frequencies and forensic parameters of the 47 InDels were investigated in 638 unrelated individuals from these four populations. The results can serve as a reference database that includes InDels in the populations, and they can contribute to population diversity studies.
