Abstract

Abstract Allele frequency data for the 15 STR systems and Amelogenine were determined in a population sample of healthy Black unrelated individuals. All loci met Hardy–Weinberg expectations and the high discrimination power of combined system showed the forensic efficiency of these genetic markers. There is a lack of information on Ecuadorian population from a genetic point of view and therefore no previous publications on the distribution of STRs on Black population is available. Blackas are descendents of slaves procedentes of Africa.
