OBJECTIVE
To report on a rare allele FGA-13 identified in Guangdong Han population.

METHODS
The rare allele was detected by PCR-STR and DNA sequencing.

RESULTS
The core repeat sequence of rare allele FGA-OL is [TTTC]3[TTTT][TTCT][CTTT]5 [CTCC][TTCC]2, which has been determined as FGA-13.

CONCLUSION
The rare allele FGA-13 is also present in Guangdong Han population. This is significant for personal identification and paternity testing.
