Abstract The PowerPlex 16 amplification kit was used for the analysis of allele frequencies for the 15 STR loci (D3S1358, TH01, D21S11, D18S51, Penta E, D5S818, D13S317, D7S820, D16S539, CSF1PO, Penta D, VWA, D8S1179, TPOX and FGA) in unrelated, autochthonous healthy adults from Bosnia (n=123 for TH01, Penta E, D16S539, CSF1PO, Penta D and TPOX, n=210 for D3S1358, D21S11, D18S51, D5S818, D13S317, D7S820, VWA, D8S1179 and FGA). The agreement with HWE was confirmed for all loci with the exception of Penta D (based on the 2-test only). The combined power of discrimination (PD) and the combined power of exclusion (PE) for the 15 studied loci were 0.999999999999999997 and 0.999999, respectively.
