Allele and genotype frequencies of 25 SNPs previously selected and validated for forensic purposes were assessed in 250 unrelated individuals originating from five different countries of Europe (Spain, Croatia, Bulgaria, Turkey and Serbia). All the SNPs generated extremely low Fst values confirming our previous results on Italian, African (Benin) and Asian (Mongolian) populations. As a consequence of such Fst values we observed similar values of random match probability across the populations: 2.26 × 10-10 in the Spanish population, 2.13 × 10 -10 in the Croatian population, 4.21 × 10-10 in the Bulgarian population, 2.52 × 10-10 in the Serbian population and 1.46 × 10-10 in the Turkish population.
