20 loci new standard

Twenty CODIS Core Loci

In early 2015, the FBI announced that the validation project for additional CODIS Core Loci had been completed and that an additional seven loci would be added to the CODIS Core effective January 1, 2017.3 The additional seven loci—D1S1656, D2S441, D2S1338, D10S1248, D12S391, D19S433 and D22S1045—along with the original 13 loci, will comprise the new CODIS Core Loci. Below is a listing of the 20 CODIS Core Loci.

  • D13S317
  • D16S539
  • D18S51
  • D21S11
  • FGA
  • TH01
  • TPOX
  • vWA
  • D1S1656 (effective January 1, 2017)
  • D2S441 (effective January 1, 2017)
  • D2S1338 (effective January 1, 2017)
  • D10S1248 (effective January 1, 2017)
  • D12S391 (effective January 1, 2017)
  • D19S433 (effective January 1, 2017)
  • D22S1045 (effective January 1, 2017)


  • This does NOT mean all earlier DNA profiles will be eliminated from the system.  In many cases, the evidence was destroyed during testing and there is no way to test for more. 
  • The news stories made it clear they plan to test more evidence in the case - and more suspects need to be tested.

  • But it is true the newer tests will include more LOCI and I hope some of the news tests done here will have all 20.
