Archival pathology specimens are nowadays a frequently used source in forensic identification or paternity testing, if no other material is available. A greater part of this archived material, however, consists of solid tumors known for aberrations in coding and non-coding regions of the genome. Therefore, alterations of short tandem repeats (STRs) used in forensic casework are also possible. In our study of 118 solid tumors, 46 lymph node metastases, and 16 distant metastases with the AmpFlSTR… CONTINUE READING
