The pairing of at least one set of alleles has been observed to coincide with a critical time in the life of a stem cell: the moment when it commits to develop into a specific cell type.
COLOR ALLELES As if all of this weren't complicated enough, there is more than one place (or locus) on a Lab's chromosomes where genes influence color.

This article examines data from another source: in recent years, research on the serotonin transporter gene has been carried out in many countries and the published reports provide evidence of the distribution of the respective alleles in many countries.
In addition, the use of a limited number of STR loci (kits usually enable the typing of 9-15 autosomal STR loci) can very occasionally result in failure to exclude a wrongly accused person who may, by chance, carry copies of all the alleles that the child inherited from its true parent.

Given the need for routine HLA genotyping for histocompatibility testing, the Immunogenetics community has characterized over 14000 named HLA alleles using a variety of techniques including traditional serological approaches and more recent DNA-based methodologies including restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) analysis, PCR-sequence specific oligonucleotide probes (PCR-SSOP), sequence specific primer PCR (SSP-PCR), Sanger sequence based typing (SBT) and most recently next generation sequencing (NGS) (8-19).
