  • Allelic frequencies of eight autosomal short‐tandem repeat (STR) loci (TH01, TPOx, CSF1PO, vWA, FES/FPS, F13A1, F13B, and CD4) were determined in 400 individuals born in the State of São Paulo. No significant deviations from Hardy‐Weinberg equilibrium were found in any loci analyzed. The Unweighted Pair‐Group Method with Arithmetic Mean (UPGMA) tree constructed based on genetic distances revealed that the present population was grouped with Europeans, and separated from African and Amerindian… CONTINUE READING
