have developed a general approach to the assessment of short autosomal
DNA segments. Each such segment includes at least one single nucleotide
polymorphism (SNP) and exactly one short tandem repeat (STR) locus.
These two types of genetic markers have dramatically different mutation
rates, and therefore provide complementary evolutionary information.
We call the combination of a SNP and an STR a "SNPSTR", and have
developed a simple, rapid method for empirically determining gametic
phase for double (or triple) heterozygotes.
