Researchers evaluate use of pharmacy-based naloxone education and distribution to fight opioid overdoses - Forensic Media News - RSS
In response to the growing opioid crisis, several states, including Massachusetts and Rhode Island, have granted pharmacists the authority to provide naloxone rescue kits without a prescription to at-risk patients. This model of pharmacy-based naloxone (PBN) education and distribution is one of the public health strategies currently being evaluated at hundreds of pharmacies in both states to determine the impact on opioid overdose death rates.

Predicting facial characteristics from complex polygenic variations - Forensic article feed - RSS
Facial features are one of our most distinguishing visible traits, and known to be modeled by combined genetic, epigenetic and environmental factors [1]. An example of this are monozygotic twins, often so similar in appearance that they can be difficult to tell apart, which concludes that at least partial reconstruction of facial features from DNA should be possible.

52 Additional Reference Population Samples for the 55 AISNP panel - Forensic article feed - RSS
In 2014 we published a panel of 55 ancestry informative single nucleotide polymorphisms (AISNPs) and showed that seven to eight biogeographic regions could be distinguished using these markers on 3,884 individuals from 73 populations [1]. The data on those populations for these 55 AISNPs are available in the ALlele FREquency Database ALFRED [2] and for estimating ancestry using the Forensic Reference Resource on Genetics Knowledge Base (FROG-kb) [3]. How these SNPs help reveal ancestry was demonstrated [1] in principal components analysis (PCA) and STRUCTURE [4] analyses.
