Stutter peaks are artefacts that arise during PCR amplification of short tandem repeats. Stutter peaks are especially important in forensic case work with DNA mixtures. The aim of the study was primarily to estimate the stutter rates of the AmpF/STR Yfiler kit. We found that the stutter rates differ at the allelic level and with the parental peak height.
