The X linked short tandem repeats (STR) markers have proven to be very useful tools for paternity testing when the disputed child is female. The purpose of this study was to describe the genetic polymorphism of four X-chromosomal STR loci (DXS6797, DXS6800, HPRTB and GATA172D05) in a Peruvian population sample and evaluate their efficiency in forensic practice and paternity testing. © 2008 Elsevier Ireland Ltd.
