Substantial STR population data exist to estimate F(ST) (or theta) values across Europeans. Eleven populations across Europe were analyzed, and the estimate over all 13 CODIS core STR loci is 0.0028. This value is much less than the conservative estimate of 0.01 advocated by the second National Research Council Report in 1996. Because of the low value for theta, whether independence is assumed or an adjustment for substructure is employed, there is little practical consequence for forensic… CONTINUE READING
