This volume focuses on the latest techniques used in forensic DNA analysis. The chapters include a comprehensive collection of extraction, quantification, STR amplification, and detection methods for routine forensic samples, including manual, semi-automated, and automated procedures using both home-brew and commercial products. The chapters also discuss probabilistic modeling software and specialized start-to-finish procedures for mitochondrial DNA analysis, archived latent fingerprints, latent DNA, rapid DNA profiling, and next-generation sequencing. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introduction to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
Cutting-edge and practical, Forensic DNA Analysis: Methods and Protocols is a valuable resource for researchers interested in learning more about forensic DNA analysis procedures.
