Abstract Background: A paternity disagreement analyzed with 15 autosomal microsatellite markers indicated allele sharing between the mother, questioned child and the alleged father generating an inconclusive paternity result. Design and methods: In total, 15 autosomal and 17 Y tandem repeat loci were analyzed using AmpFlSTR Identifiler, AmpFlSTR®Y-filer™ kits followed by six microsatellite markers on X chromosome in DNA extracted from peripheral blood samples of the mother, questioned child and…

Structure and genetic relationship of five populations from central India based on 15 autosomal STR loci
With respect to the distribution of alleles at each STR locus, the studied loci were found to be substantially polymorphic in all the studied populations, indicating good informativeness of all 15 STR markers.

The population’s genetic structure analysis of this population can assist to contrive future genetic studies, and the genetic proximity of the studied population was observed with central Indian population.
Assessing the exclusionary power of paternity tests involving a pair of alleged parents
General equations are derived for the average power of exclusion of the twoparent disputed paternity case and the corresponding value of the mean exclusion chance (MEC) and paternity index (PI) among these three types of paternity case.
Genetic polymorphism study at 15 autosomal locus in central Indian population
The studied population showed the genetic proximity with geographically close populations of India and significant genetic variation with distant populations which is also evident by clustering pattern of the NJ tree and the PCA plot.
DNA Fingerprinting: A substantial and imperative aid to forensic investigation -
Diverse variants of DNA fingerprinting technology, its status and application in forensic case work is reviewed, providing option for simultaneous amplification of different types and more number of STR markers along with ancestry based SNPs in a single run, thus besides saving cost and time both, are more informative too.
Genomic diversity in Madhya Pradesh, India: Genetic relationship among three ethnic populations from Madhya Pradesh based on STR polymorphism
Genomic diversity based on 4 STR loci, CSF1P0, TPOX, TH01 and FGA is studied in Gond, Bhil and Brahmin populations of the Madhya Pradesh, India to find highly informative and discriminating loci that fall under Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium.


Microsatellite mutation in the maternally/paternally transmitted D18S51 locus: two cases of allele mismatch in the child.
Mother-child double incompatibility at vWA and D5S818 loci in paternity testing
This is the first study of a maternally transmitted microsatellite mutation in the loci D5S818 and vWA in paternity DNA testing and convincingly established that the mother and suspected father are the biological parents of the questioned child.
Mutation in the STR locus D21S1 1 of father causing allele mismatch in the child.
A case of paternity dispute with 15 autosomal STR loci and found a mismatch in one of the alleles of the locus D21S11 in the child suggests that the suspicious father is the biological father of the child.

A case of double alleles at three Y-STR loci: forensic implications
In a genetic study of unrelated donors from Bahia (Brazil), one sample contained a 16 Y-STR haplotype with double peaks at three loci: DYS389 II, DYS437 and DYS439, which attracts the attention in the forensic interpretation of Y-haplotype profiles.
Mutations or exclusion: an unusual case in paternity testing
In an immigration case with the scope of family reunification, the DNA extracted from the saliva samples of the male child, the alleged mother and the putative father was typed with 22 autosomal short tandem repeat (STR) systems, and the application of eight Y-chromosomal markers showed that the alleged father could be excluded from paternity.
