This study examined the population frequency and genetic diversity of 13 autosomal STR loci in 12 populations of Taiwanese.
The populations included Bunun, Paiwan, Saisiat, Tao, Ami, Rukai, Atayal, Tsou, Pazeh, Puyumar, Hakka and Han. The STR loci
were the CODIS including D3S1358, vWA, FGA, D8S1179, D21S11, D18S51, D5S818, D13S317, D7S820, D16S539, TH01,
TPOX and CSF1PO. In this study no deviations from the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium were observed for the 13 STR loci by the
exact test. The range of matching probability for the 13 loci is from 1.44 × 10-13 in Tsou to 8.76 × 10-15 in Taiwanese Han population.
Only one mutation event in D8S1179 locus, altering allele 16 to 15, was detected in 250 meiosis alleles in the mutation screening.
The Neighbor-joining tree of cluster analysis was constructed with the genetic distance of 12 populations on 13 loci, which may
be useful for phylogenetic study of populations in Taiwan. These data supported the Hanization hypothesis for populations in
