Here is the most recent post on STRP-L:

SUBJECT: GeneMarker and Ybase

Fellow satelliters,

SoftGenetics has an excellent substitute for
the ABI GeneMapper product. You can download a copy of GeneMarker and try it here:

Another very interesting facility has appeared for those interested in differentiating human populations
from each other. It is a microsat. resource based on Y-chromosome markers. You can study their input format and connect names to chromosomes.
View it here:

and here:

Happy PCRing!


The Short Tandem Repeat Polymorphism listserv (STRP-L) at NIH is devoted to technical discussions of locating, detecting, multiplexing, binning, and analyzing this type of genetic variant. STRs are valuable in forensic applications, as well as population history reconstructions, coalescence studies, calibrating molecular clocks, setting phase, and providing location markers for TdT and other association and linkage studies.

In and of themselves, they are also markers of carrier status and causes of several triplet repeat polymorphism diseases.

To subscribe, send an email to
with the following text in the body of the message (not in the subject line).

subscribe STRP-L your name
(Example: subscribe STRP-L John Smith)

or open a browser at: http://list.nih.gov/archives/strp-l.html

and follow the subscription directions.

Please note that individuals not writing from a professional email address (.com, .gov, or .edu) will be asked to provide their reasons for wishing to join this list. The intention is to keep the level of discussion on the listserv high.
