About this book

Leading forensic experts from around the world describe in detail their time-proven methods for identity testing through DNA analysis. Their state-of-the-art collection of easily reproducible methods includes all of the major techniques of DNA analysis currently used in forensic identity testing. The book covers PCR- based test systems the now widely used STR typing systems (complete with details of both manual and automated detection systems) repeat unit mapping (MVR) direct phase minisequencing capillary electrophoresis and direct blotting. Also fully discussed are the recovery of DNA from a wide range of sample types (blood semen skeletal remains and saliva) species testing sex determination and mitochondrial DNA testing. SMP Version: This state-of-the-art collection of easily reproducible methods includes all of the major techniques of DNA analysis currently used in forensic identity testing. The methods include the recovery of DNA from a large range of sample types analysis of DNA as single and multi-locus VNTR probes PCR amplification of STR and other loci and mitochondrial sequencing. The expert scientists writing here-many from laboratories around the world-also discuss how to interpret the results in cases of unknown identity and disputed parentage.

For the first time the major laboratory procedures used in human identification are brought together in one book...contains much valuable information. - Journal of the Forensic Science Society
