Allele frequencies for the eight STR loci Hum-CSF1P0, F13A01, F13B, FES/FPS, LPL, TH01, TPOX and VWA were investigated in Japanese and Chinese populations. No significant deviations from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium could be found for all loci. In the Japanese population VWA, CSF1PO, TH01, FES/FPS and TPOX were found to be useful for forensic applications and in the Chinese population, VWA, CSF1PO, TH01 and TPOX were found to be useful. Allele distributions were similar between both populations except for FES/FPS.
