Fungal DNA challenge in human STR typing of bone samples.


The present study focuses on possible cross-reaction of fungal DNA with human STR primers that may affect subsequent forensic DNA analysis of forensic samples. Specificity of human STR markers namely HUMAMEL, HUMCSF1PO, D8S306, HUMTH01, HUMvWA, HUMFES/FPS, HUMF13A01, HUMDHFRP2, HUMFGA and HUMTPOX was tested using DNA of 24 different filamentous fungal… (More)
