A Cannabis sativa STR Genotype Database for Australian Seizures: Forensic Applications and Limitations

Howard, Christopher; Gilmore, Simon Roland; Robertson, James; Peakall, Rodney


A genetic database was established with the aim of documenting the genetic diversity of Cannabis sativa in Australia for future utilization in forensic investigations. The database consisted of genotypes at 10 validated short tandem repeat loci for 510 plants representing drug seizures from across Australia and 57 fiber samples. A total of 106 alleles and 314 different genotypes were detected. All fiber samples exhibited unique genotypes while 55% of the drug samples shared a genotype with one...[Show more]
