Allele frequencies for 15 short tandem repeats (STR) loci were obtained from a sample of 4076 unrelated individuals undergoing paternity testing. The population is from Paraná, Southern Brazil. The loci are the most commonly used in forensic and paternity testing, being analyzed by the AmpFlSTR((R)) Identifiler (Applied Biosystems) commercial kit. The most polymorphic loci were D2S1338 and D18S51. Excepting the D13S317, all loci were in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium. Comparative analyses between our population data and other populations are presented.
