Conference paper


Analysis of variable number of tandem repeats (VNTR) loci is widely used for individualization at the DNA level in forensic testing (1).The VNTR locus D1S80 was first isolated and identified by Nakamura et al (2) and successfully amplified by the PCR (3).This is probably one of the most commonly used PCR systems in forensic laboratories and so more population data are available (4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11).
