NCJRS Celebrates National Library Week April 12-18

National Library Week

Started in 1958, National Library Week is a nationwide observance celebrated by all types of libraries - including the NCJRS Virtual Library. NCJRS invites you to explore the breadth and scope of the NCJRS Virtual Library collection and services. With more than 220,000 collection documents and 60,000 online resources, including all known Office of Justice Programs works, it is one of the world’s largest criminal justice special collections.

We encourage your Feedback. Tell us how you use the NCJRS Virtual Library and Abstracts Database, how you access the collection, and any ways we can improve our services.

  Annotation: Forty-nine of the 52 autosomal single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the SNPforID 52plex were typed in 101 unrelated Iraqis living in Denmark.
Abstract: No significant deviation from HWE was found in all but 1 of the 49 SNP systems and no significant pairwise linkage disequilibrium was observed for any SNP pair. When 18 worldwide populations were compared (including populations in Iraq, Turkey, Israel, Pakistan, India, China, Taiwan, Japan, Siberia, Algeria, Somalia, Uganda, Mozambique, Angola, Nigeria, Denmark, Portugal, Spain), a significant global F(ST) value was obtained. All but six F(ST) values were statistically significant when pairwise comparisons were performed between the 18 populations. The Iraqi population did not show significant difference from the population in Turkey and it grouped together with other Middle-Eastern populations when a multidimensional scaling plot was drawn based on the pairwise F(ST) values. The combined mean match probability and the typical paternity index for trios were 8.3×10(-20) and 259,000, respectively, for the Iraqi population. (Publisher Abstract)
