Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) from 41 buccal swabs containing saliva and 7 punches containing blood was obtained from a Native American Alaskan population. Allele frequencies, observed and expected heterozygosities, p-values from the Fisher Exact Test, power of discrimination (PD), power of exclusion (PE), and mean power of exclusion (MPE) for each locus were determined for the 48 Native Alaskan samples amplified with the PowerPlex? 16 HS System. All loci except for D13S317 yielded p-values > 0.05, and thus failed to detect any departure from Hardy Weinberg Equilibrium (HWE). Haplotype distributions were determined for the 48 Native Alaskan samples amplified with the AmpFlSTR? Yfiler PCR Amplification Kit. There were a total of 36 different haplotypes observed among 48 individuals. The haplotype diversity value was 0.989.
