Genotyping and Interpretation of STR-DNA: Low-template,Mixtures and Database Matches - twenty years of research anddevelopment - Forensic article feed - RSS
Short tandem repeat (STR) analysis was first introduced into forensic casework 20 years ago. The ability to combine several markers to form multiplexes and to subsequently visualise the results by automated fluorescent sequencing made National DNA databases feasible. The first example was launched in 1995 by the defunct Forensic Science Service (FSS). This ‘twentieth anniversary’ review is a perspective on the development and the subsequent worldwide adoption of STRs that has taken place over the previous two decades.

An optimized procedure for obtaining DNA from Fired and Unfired Ammunition - Forensic article feed - RSS
Gun crimes are a significant problem facing law enforcement agencies. Traditional forensic examination of firearms involves comparisons of markings imparted to bullets and cartridge casings during the firing process. DNA testing of casings and cartridges may not be routinely done in crime laboratories due a variety of factors including the typically low amounts of DNA recovered. The San Diego Police Department (SDPD) Crime Laboratory conducted a study to optimize the collection and profiling of DNA from fired and unfired ammunition.
