STRNaming: STR Sequence Name Generator

STRNaming is an unbiased method to automatically generate short, informative and human-readable descriptions of STR alleles that works the same for any locus in use now or in the future.

This page is based on STRNaming version 1.2.0. Please refer to STRNaming Updates for more information regarding STRNaming versions and compatibility.

Reported Ranges

Please enter the names and genomic coordinates of the analysed sequence fragments. Coordinates are 1-based, using human genome reference sequence version 38 (GRCh38). Each line should contain a marker name and a coordinate range, in that order. Various formats are supported, such as "chr13:82148021-82148104", "13:82148021..82148104" or "Chromosome 13, from 82148021 to 82148104" or variations thereof. Coordinate ranges should exclude the primer binding sites. By default, the ISFG Minimum Range GRCh38 coordinates are used.

This online version of STRNaming is currently limited to the most commonly used forensic STR markers. If a message "Reference sequence unavailable" shows up for any of your markers, please contact us via email or GitHub to have them added! Alternatively, install FDSTools and use the 'seconvert' tool to access the Python version of STRNaming.

Allele naming sequence input

Please enter the sequences to process below. Each line should contain a marker name and a sequence separated by a space, comma, or semicolon. Sequence data should exclude the primers and should correspond exactly to the range entered above. If you need to reverse-complement some sequences, try this.
