Improving the amplification and analysis of highly degraded DNA extracts has been a longstanding area of research in forensic genetics. One of the most promising recent developments in analysis of degraded DNA is the availability of short, biallelic insertion–deletion length polymorphisms (InDels) in highly multiplexed assays. InDels share many of the favourable characteristics of single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) that make them ideal markers for analysis of degraded DNA, including… CONTINUE READING
