Next generation sequencing (NGS) makes it realizable to integrate a cluster of SNPs and form a new type of forensic marker microhaplotype. We got a microhaplotype locus containing 3 SNPs and within the expanse of 164 bp from data of Illumina Mi-Seq, whose information approaches to STR locus. A panel of microhaplotype loci is helpful for individual identification, kinship analyses, ancestry inference and mixture.
