A Korean Population Study of the 9 STR Loci FGA, VWA, D3S1358, D18S51, D21S11, D8S1179, D7S820, D13S317, and D5S818


Population genetic studies were carried out on randomly selected and unrelated individuals from Korean(n=379) using 9 short tandem repeat loci FGA, VWA, D3S1358, D18S51, D21S11, D8S1179, D7S820, D 13S317, and D5S818, respectively. After electrophoresis, 18 alleles were identified for FGA, 7 alleles for VWA, 8 alleles for D3S1358, 16 alleles for D18S51, 15 alleles for D21S11, 10 alleles for D8S1179, 9 alleles for D7S820, and 9 alleles for D13S317. No deviation from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium was found. Some statistical parameters of forensic interest, such as observed/expected heterozygosity, mean exclusion channce, power of discrimination and polymorphism information content were determined. The results for FGA, D21S11, and VWA showed no differences of allele frequency between the different Korean population groups.
