Gabon black population data on the ten short tandem repeat loci D3S1358, VWA, D16S539, D2S1338, D8S1179, D21S11, D18S51, D19S433, TH01 and FGA

Allele frequencies for ten short tandem repeat (STR) loci D3S1358, VWA, D16S539, D2S1338, D8S1179, D21S11, D18S51, D19S433, TH01 and FGA were determined in a Black African sample population from Gabon. All loci were highly polymorphic and except for TH01, D21S11 and D16S539, all met Hardy-Weinberg expectations. There was little evidence of association of alleles between the loci in this database. The combined power of exclusion for the ten STR loci was 0.999981. While significant differences between the Gabon population and the Austrian Caucasian population were found at all loci, significant differences were found between the Gabon population and Zimbabweans only for D3S1358 and between the Gabon population and African Americans only for TH01 and D8S1179
