Abstract

Allele frequencies for the 13 CODIS markers plus D2S1358 and D19S433 loci were estimated in a sample of 148 unrelated individuals from Bolivia and parameters of forensic interest were calculated. Further, the STR data were analyzed using a distance-based method to assess the genetic relationships of this population with other ones living in Argentina, Brazil, Costa Rica, Mexico, Peru, Venezuela and three autochthonous populations living in the Beni Department of Bolivia (Quechua, Aymara and Beni population).
