Austrian STR Population Data using the PowerSeq GY46 System and Massively Parallel Sequencing
Müller,P.; Berger,B.; Bodner,M.; DNASEQEX Consortium; Parson,W.
By using massively parallel sequencing (MPS) technologies to genotype forensic markers, it is possible to characterize sequence variations located in the repeat and flanking regions of short tandem repeats (STRs). To account for sequence based allele frequencies valid for the Austrian population, we performed a population study including 248 unrelated male donors verifiably born in Austria. In accordance with the Austrian law and permission of the Federal Ministry of the Interior, Austria, it is possible to use DNA samples and DNA profiles of the Austrian National DNA Database for population studies, preconditioned the data is made anonymous.
