X-chromosomal short tandem repeats (ChrX STRs) loci are used for forensic practice in recent years. Considering the unique heredity characteristics of ChrX, recombination and linkage disequilibrium (LD) among ChrX STR loci vary between male and female and different populations as well. However, there is a lack of data for analysis of recombination and linkage disequilibrium on ChrX STR loci in the Chinese population. In this work, a total of 303 unrelated individuals (203 males and 100 females… CONTINUE READING
