The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has compiled and maintained a Short Tandem Repeat DNA Internet Database (http://www.cstl.nist.gov/biotech/++ +strbase/) since 1997 commonly referred to as STRBase. This database is an information resource for the forensic DNA typing community with details on commonly used short tandem repeat (STR)(More)
Copying multiple regions of a DNA molecule is routinely performed today using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in a process commonly referred to as multiplex PCR. The development of a multiplex PCR reaction involves designing primer sets and examining various combinations of those primer sets and different reaction components and/or thermal cycling(More)
The simultaneous amplification of multiple regions of a DNA template is routinely performed using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in a process termed multiplex PCR. A useful strategy involving the design, testing, and optimization of multiplex PCR primer mixtures will be presented. Other multiplex design protocols have focused on the testing and(More)
