 Abstract
Testing the sibling relationship becomes more important issue in many cases such as the reunion of dispersed family members whose parents have already passed away and the discrimination between pure-bred and crossbred dogs. Analysis of the sibling case is different from that of the paternity case. In this paper, we describe how to evaluate and determine the sibling relationship by comparing sibling pairs with unrelated pairs. We use the Korean population with 17 independent STR loci system to propose a discrimination rule.
