STRSeq: FAQ for submitting

Published:October 19, 2022DOI:


      The STR sequencing project was developed due to the necessity of publicly sharing sequencing information about Short Tandem Repeats (STR) associated with human identification. Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) or Massively Parallel Sequencing (MPS) is becoming more prevalent in forensics. Having a publicly accessible centralized location to maintain this forensic-specific type of sequencing information is useful for the community. It is also important that the community participate in providing information to strengthen this resource. Here we answer common questions about the STRSeq BioProject and encourage community engagement.
