Forensic DNA typing has been a constantly evolving field driven by innovations from academic laboratories as well as kit manufacturers. Central to these technological advances has been the transition from multilocus-probe restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) methods to short tandem repeat (STR) PCR-based assays. STRs are now the markers of choice for forensic DNA typing and a wide variety of commercial STR kits have been designed to meet the various needs of a forensic lab. This… CONTINUE READING
