Insertion/deletion (INDEL) polymorphisms are diallelic markers with potential characteristics for use in forensics and biological anthropology, including: the simplicity of laboratory analysis, the possibility of genotyping many markers in a single PCR multiplex reaction, as well as analyzing markers with special inheritance types, such as those linked to the X chromosome (X-INDEL). In this work we developed a laboratory analysis methodology using a 33-INDEL marker panel for the X chromosome in… CONTINUE READING
