Sequence-based U.S. population data for 7 X STR loci

April 26, 2021
Lisa Borsuk, Carolyn R. Steffen, Kevin M. Kiesler, Peter Vallone, Katherine Gettings
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) U.S. population sample set of unrelated individuals was used to determine allele and haplotype frequencies for seven X-chromosome short tandem repeat (STR) loci in four linkage groups. DXS7132

Certification of Standard Reference Material 2365 BK Virus DNA Quantitative Standard

August 29, 2018
Megan H. Cleveland, Natalia Farkas, Kevin M. Kiesler, Blaza Toman, Peter M. Vallone
Standard Reference Material (SRM) 2365 is intended for use in the value assignment of BK virus deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) to BK DNA controls and standards. A unit of SRM 2365 consists of a well characterized, linearized plasmid, containing BK virus DNA

Sequence-based U.S. population data for 27 autosomal STR loci

July 19, 2018
Katherine Gettings, Lisa Borsuk, Carolyn R. Steffen, Kevin M. Kiesler, Peter Vallone
This manuscript reports STR sequence-based allele frequencies for the "NIST 1036" sample set across 27 autosomal STR loci: D1S1656, TPOX, D2S441, D2S1338, D3S1358, D4S2408, FGA, D5S818, CSF1PO, D6S1043, D7S820, D8S1179, D9S1122, D10S1248, TH01, vWA

Sequence-based U.S. population data for the SE33 locus

May 7, 2018
Lisa Borsuk, Katherine Gettings, Carolyn R. Steffen, Kevin M. Kiesler, Peter Vallone
A set of 1036 U.S. Population Samples were sequenced using the Illumina ForenSeq DNA Signature Prep Kit. This sample set has been highly characterized using a variety of marker systems for human identification. The FASTQ files obtained from a ForenSeq DNA

Sequence variation of 22 autosomal STR loci detected by next generation sequencing

December 1, 2015
Katherine Gettings, Kevin M. Kiesler, Seth A. Faith, Elizabeth Montano, Christine H. Baker, Brian A. Young, Richard A. Guerreri, Peter Vallone
Sequencing short tandem repeat (STR) loci allows for determination of repeat motif variations within the STR (or entire PCR amplicon) which cannot be ascertained by size-based PCR fragment analysis. Sanger sequencing has been used in research laboratories

Performance of a next generation sequencing SNP assay on degraded DNA

May 27, 2015
Katherine Gettings, Kevin M. Kiesler, Peter Vallone
Forensic DNA casework samples are often of insufficient quantity or quality to generate full profiles by conventional DNA typing methods. Amplification of STR loci is inherently limited in samples containing degraded DNA, as the cumulative size of repeat
