Table 2 The peak height analysis using the major cluster rule for the STR profile shown in Fig. 8. A visual inspection alone should suggest that a major cluster cannot be assigned for this profile since there is no clear separation between a set of large peaks and smaller ones. However the analysis is performed for demonstration purposes
