Abstract

This study investigated 22 autosomal short tandem repeat (STR) loci in 156 unrelated individuals from the Mong ethnic minority in Ha Giang Province, Vietnam. Allele frequencies and forensic parameters were calculated, showing the combined Powers of Discrimination reaching 1.000000000000000000000000000000 and the combined Power of Exclusion greater than 0.999999986623. Phylogenetic analysis indicated that the Vietnamese Mong population has close genetic relationships with other Hmong-Mien populations.
