Entire mitochondrial control region data was generated for 128 "Hispanics" from the United States. These samples have been previously typed for 15 autosomal STRs [J.M. Butler, R. Schoske, P.M. Vallone, J.W. Redman, M.C. Kline, Allele frequencies for 15 autosomal STR loci on U.S. Caucasian, African American, and Hispanic populations, J. Forensic Sci. 48 (2003) 908-911]. High-throughput robotics, a redundant sequencing approach, and several quality control checks were implemented to generate a high-quality database. The data presented here will augment Hispanic reference data available for forensic mtDNA comparisons.
