As nobody took me up on my question with an answer, I presume that it must
have been very naive, though I am no more the wiser! All that seems to have
happened is a series of exchanges on the availability and accuracy of
mutation rates listed for STR's by various researchers and companies. Bryan

This is probably a naive question , but what are generally considered to be
the "break-points" in a classification of slow, medium and fast mutating
STR's. Thanks, Bryan Cook

With all this discussion of marker mutation rates, does anyone know
where I can find a list of STR markers and their relative mutation
rates? I guess there's more than one way to define the rate?
It would be useful to identify my most 'unusual' slow markers.
