Title: Investigation of autosomal tetranucleotide STR loci and male lineages among UK Leicestershire and Polynesian populations
Authors: Watson, Emma
Issue Date: 2000
Publisher: © Emma Watson
Abstract: This study reports the findings of an investigation of ten polymorphic autosomal tetranucleotide short tandem repeat loci and Y chromosome haplotype diversity among the genetically diverse populations of UK Leicestershire caucasians, New Zealand Maori and other Polynesian Islanders. The ten autosomal loci were initially isolated and sequenced by the Utah Marker Development group. This present study optimised the methodology for use with unlabelled primers and submarine gel electrophoresis technology. Little or no previous population or forensic genetic research had been carried out incorporating the ten loci presented in this study. [Continues.]
