DNA typing with short tandem repeat (STR) markers is now widely used for a variety of applications including human identification. Capillary electrophoresis (CE) instruments, such as the ABI Prism 310 and ABI 3100 Genetic Analyzers, are the method of choice for many laboratories performing STR analysis. This review discusses issues surrounding sample preparation, injection, separation, detection, and interpretation of STR results using CE systems. Requirements for accurate typing of STR alleles… 

Principles, Practice, and Evolution of Capillary Electrophoresis as a Tool for Forensic DNA Analysis.

The high sizing precision, ability to detect fluorescence emitted from multiple dyes, automated electrophoretic runs, and data collection software are key factors in the worldwide adoption of CE as the preferred platform for forensic DNA analysis.

Short tandem repeat typing technologies used in human identity testing.

A brief perspective on the technologies and issues involved in STR typing is offered.

High-throughput sequencing of core STR loci for forensic genetic investigations using the Roche Genome Sequencer FLX platform.

This paper presents an STR profiling method based on the use of the Roche Genome Sequencer (GS) FLX to simultaneously sequence multiple core STR loci and found DNA base substitutions and repeat sequence variations that would not have been identified using conventional STR typing.

The development of mini pentameric STR loci for rapid analysis of forensic DNA samples on a microfluidic system

This paper discusses the development of reduced length pentameric (5 base) STR amplicons and demonstrates efficient separations on these chips by incorporating novel denaturing sieving polymers in a short microfluidic channel.

An overview of DNA typing methods for human identification: past, present, and future.

The development of the PCR and short tandem repeats along with subsequent advances in instrumentation such as real-time PCR and capillary electrophoresis have brought about a revolution in DNA typing methods through increased efficiency and the application of multiplex fluorescence detection.
