Today, the molecular technique routinely for sex determination in forensics is based the detection of length variations in the X-Y homologous amelogenin gene (AMELX and AMELY). In humans, the amelogenin gene is a single-copy gene located on Xp22.1-Xp22.3 and Yp11.2; the simultaneous detection of the X and Y alleles using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) can(More)
The role of DNA damage in PCR processivity/fidelity is a relevant topic in molecular investigation of aged/forensic samples. In order to reproduce one of the most common lesions occurring in postmortem tissues, a new protocol based on aqueous hydrolysis of the DNA was developed in vitro. Twenty-five forensic laboratories were then provided with 3.0 μg of a(More)
