FBI CODIS Core STR Loci:
The FBI has published its thirteen core loci for the
Combined DNA Index
System (CODIS) database. STR Fact Sheets are available for all thirteen
loci (click on locus name for the STR Fact Sheet).

genomics of core STR loci used in human identity testing.

Note that as
of January 1, 2017, the FBI will require an additional 7 STR loci for
uploading DNA profiles to the National DNA Index System (NDIS). These additional
STR loci are D1S1656,
D19S433, and D22S1045. For further
