5. Add your first sample
Add your first sample in the second row starting with the appropriate sample name and role followed by the alleles of the Y-STRs of each column. Even though the YHRD is understanding a lot of different allele notations, we highly encourage you to use comma-separated alleles like “10,11” and give intermediate alleles with dots like “10.1”. Null-alleles are given by “0”. Please avoid alleles like “OL”, “<14”, “-“ and so on. Always have a look at the list of observed alleles found at the appropriate locus information page to validate your results. Any sample considered for calculation need a role assignment. Possible values are “Trace”, “Suspect” and “Known Contributor” (mandatory in bold).
