Allele frequencies for 15 autosomal short tandem repeat (STR) loci included in the AmpFlSTR® Identifiler® PCR Amplification Kit from Applied Biosystems (D8S1179, D21S11, D7S820, CSF1PO, D3S1358, TH01, D13S317, D16S539, D2S1338, D19S433, vWA, TPOX, D18S51, D5S818 and FGA) and several statistical parameters were estimated from a sample of 224 unrelated individuals, mostly males, living in capital Baku (Azerbaijan) from central and southern governorates. The allele frequency spectrum detected in the Azerbaijani sample were compared to allele frequencies from 5 other data sets from published studies of individuals from Turkey, Iran, Russian, Caucasians and American populations. Significant global differences in allele frequencies were detected.
Key words: Azerbaijan population, short tandem repeat DNA typing (STR DNA typing), population data, allele frequencies.
