Short Tandem Repeat (STR) is a molecular biology method used as a tool in forensic analysis. It evaluates specific STR regions found on nuclear DNA. STRs are short sequences of DNA, normally of length 2-5 base pairs, that are repeated numerous times in a head-tail manner. CODIS is the Combined DNA Index System of FBI that has 13 regions, or loci of DNA.
