The Short Tandem Repeat Polymorphism listserv (STRP-L) at NIH
is devoted to technical discussions of locating, detecting, 
multiplexing, binning, and analyzing this type of genetic variant.  
STRs are valuable in forensic applications, as well as
population history reconstructions, coalescence studies,
calibrating molecular clocks, setting phase, and providing
location markers for TdT and other association and linkage

In and of themselves, they are also markers of carrier
status and causes of several triplet repeat polymorphism

list.  The intention is to keep the level of discussion
on the listserv high.
