Frequency Databases for the DNA Probes MS1, MS31, MS43A, and YNH24, Derived from Caucasians, and Afro-Caribbeans in the London Area
DNA from blood samples submitted to Metropolitan Police Forensic Science Laboratory have been analysed with the probes MS1, MS31, MS43A and YNH24 using the restriction enzyme Hinf I. Frequency databases have been prepared from more than 1000 Caucasian and more than 500 Afro Caribbeans in order to assess the evidential significance of matching DNA profiles.
