This article discusses DNA typing methods in Spain.
Samples from 71 unrelated Central Spain individuals and 60 Basque Country autochthonous individuals were typed with the Investigator DIPplex kit (30 biallelic autosomal mini-indels and amelogenin) and their allele frequencies were determined. Results demonstrated the assumption of independence within and between the loci analyzed. Different partially silent alleles were observed for the locus HLD97 (rs17238892) produced by a neighboring SNP (A/G), located 61 bp downstream from the main indel site as shown by sequencing analysis.
