Population genetic data for 17 STR markers from Lebanon.

Summary of "Population genetic data for 17 STR markers from Lebanon."

Seventeen autosomal STRs were analyzed (D2S1338, D3S1358, D5S818, D7S820, D8S1179, D13S317, D16S539, D18S51, D19S433, D21S11, CSF1PO, FGA, TH01, TPOX, vWA, Penta D, and Penta E) in the Lebanese population. A total of 192 unrelated individuals were genotyped for the 15 autosomal STRs in the Promega PowerPlex 16 STR kit. An additional 275 unrelated individuals were genotyped for the Applied Biosystems AmpFlSTR Identifiler and SGM+STR kits. Allele frequencies for the shared CODIS 13 loci among the three STR kits tested were not significantly different among individuals within the Lebanese population. Forensic and population genetic parameters for the 17 loci were calculated. We also compared the allele frequencies from this population with other populations in the same geographic vicinity.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The discipline studying genetic composition of populations and effects of factors such as GENETIC SELECTION, population size, MUTATION, migration, and GENETIC DRIFT on the frequencies of various GENOTYPES and PHENOTYPES using a variety of GENETIC TECHNIQUES.

The change in gene frequency in a population due to migration of gametes or individuals (ANIMAL MIGRATION) across population barriers. In contrast, in GENETIC DRIFT the cause of gene frequency changes are not a result of population or gamete movement.

A systematic collection of factual data pertaining to the nutritional status of a human population within a given geographic area. Data from these surveys are used in preparing NUTRITION ASSESSMENTS.

Ongoing scrutiny of a population (general population, study population, target population, etc.), generally using methods distinguished by their practicability, uniformity, and frequently their rapidity, rather than by complete accuracy.

Information application based on a variety of coding methods to minimize the amount of data to be stored, retrieved, or transmitted. Data compression can be applied to various forms of data, such as images and signals. It is used to reduce costs and increase efficiency in the maintenance of large volumes of data.
