RNA analysis is expected to play an increasingly important role in the area of biomolecular forensic analysis. For example, mRNA expression analysis performed on a total RNA sample isolated from a biological stain may be used to identify the nature of the tissue(s) comprising the stain. Many of the physiological stains encountered at crime scenes involve heterogeneous mixtures of different body fluids (e.g., semen and saliva, semen and vaginal secretions). Separate sampling of these mixed… CONTINUE READING
