Since the discovery of a hypervariable locus [1] numerous such loci have been found [2–4]. Of particular value and interest are the RFLP-analysis of hypervariable VNTR regions with the single locus probe hybridization technique. These markers have great potencial for individual identification in forensic analysis and paternity testing [5–7]. However, before they can be adopted for routine use in these applications, the allele frecuency distributions must be determinated [8].
