A group of ten short tandem repeat (STR) loci suitable for PCR typing from DNA of domestic cats is evaluated for genetic individualization using blinded samples of eight putative feline blood specimens. The ten loci were also typed in a 70 member cat pedigree to demonstrate Mendelian inheritance and independent assortment. A "match window" or measurement precision estimate was empirically established by determining the maximum gel migration difference among alleles identical by descent in… CONTINUE READING
