Abstract

Entire mitochondrial control region data were generated for 248 African American individuals, which had been previously typed for 15 autosomal STRs [J.M. Butler, R. Schoske, P.M. Vallone, J.W. Redman, M.C. Kline, Allele frequencies for 15 autosomal STR loci on U.S. Caucasian, African American, and Hispanic populations, J. Forensic Sci. 48 (2003) 908-911].
