Cuba is a multiethnic and multiracial society. Here we describe the genetic variation of a sample of the Cuban population, which include the three most common racial groups, Caucasians, Negroids and Mestizos, by means of a set of nine microsatellites (HUMTH01, HUMTPOX, HUMCFS1PO, HUMVWA, HUMFESFPS, HUMF13A, HUMF13B, HUMLPL and HUMHPRTB). The analysis presented here indicates that these STR loci are highly informative for forensic purposes. The genetic data on the major racial groups is in good… CONTINUE READING
