Automated DNA Profiling Employing Multiplex Amplification of Short Tandem Repeat Loci
Short tandem repeat (STR) loci are a class of polymorphic markers which occur throughout the human genome and which consist of simple tandemly repeated sequences 1–6bp in length. Their abundance, hypervariability and amenability to amplification by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) make them ideal markers for use in the identification of individuals.
