The application of any new genetic marker system in forensic casework requires a sufficiently large data base of the relevant population. This study presents a data base of the 5 PCR-systems SE33, HUMTHO1, D21S11, HLA DQα and D1S80 for a Swiss population sample. Allele and genotype frequencies were determined of at least 195 unrelated individuals.
