CODIS (Combined DNA Index System)

CODIS is a distributed database system for documenting and comparing genetic profiles. CODIS specifies the following 13 autosomal DNA loci as a standard: (D3S1358, vWA, FGA, D8S1179, D21S11, D18S51, D5S818, D13S317, D7S820, D16S539, THO1, TPOX, CSF1PO). Genetrack tests all CODIS loci and also 2 additional loci (D2S1338 and D19S433), resulting in a more informative result than using the CODIS loci alone.
