Allele frequencies of 20 autosomal STR loci for 207 unrelated individuals of the Blang people in China
The Blang is a minority living in the mountainous areas of Xishuangbanna Dai Autonomous Prefecture, and they also scatter in the neighboring cities of Lincang and Simao. This population is investigated in this study through PowerPlex® 21 System. The frequency distribution of allele, forensic, and population parameters of 20 autosomal short tandem repeat loci were evaluated based on 207 non-related individuals from Blang minority; meanwhile, the genetic relationships between Blang and 11 related populations were also assessed.
