Sex determination of forensic samples: co-amplification and simultaneous detection of a Y-specific and an X-specific DNA sequence

Abstract

The detection of restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLP) (1) in DNA extracted from forensic samples remains impossible in a significant number of cases due to deterioration and contamination of the biological material and the extremely low quantities of DNA isolated. The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a recent and particularly convenient method… (More)
