Short tandem repeat (STR) DNA markers are hypervariable and informative in Cannabis sativa : implications for forensic investigations

Gilmore, Scott; Peakall, Rodney; Robertson, James

Description

Short tandem repeat (STR) markers are the DNA marker of choice in forensic analysis of human DNA. Here we extend the application of STR markers to Cannabis sativa and demonstrate their potential for forensic investigations. Ninety-three individual cannabis plants, representing drug and fibre accessions of widespread origin were profiled with five STR makers. A total of 79 alleles were detected across the five loci.
