Single nucleotide polymorphisms over the entire mtDNA genome that increase the power of forensic testing in Caucasians
We have sequenced the entire mtDNA genome (mtGenome) of 241 individuals who match 1 of 18 common European Caucasian HV1/HV2 types, to identify sites that permit additional forensic discrimination. WeExpand

Mitochondrial control region sequences from a Vietnamese population sample
Entire mitochondrial control region data were generated for 187 individuals from Vietnam. These samples have been previously typed for 16 autosomal short-tandem repeats (STRs) [1].

Failure of the ILD to determine data combinability for slow loris phylogeny.
Tests for incongruence as an indicator of among-data partition conflict have played an important role in conditional data combination. When such tests reveal significant incongruence, this has beenExpand

Mitochondrial DNA control region sequences from Nairobi (Kenya): inferring phylogenetic parameters for the establishment of a forensic database
Large forensic mtDNA databases which adhere to strict guidelines for generation and maintenance, are not available for many populations outside of the United States and western Europe. We haveExpand
