    Since 2007, when the journal was launched, the number of submissions of manuscripts reporting population genetic data to FSI: Genetics has continuously increased. This type of data is very welcome, considering the importance of having accurate estimates of population specific allele/haplotype frequencies of genetic markers relevant to the forensic field. For this reason, in 2010, a section on Forensic Population Genetics was introduced, including three types of formats: Original papers, Short communications and Letters to the Editor.
