Mitochondrial genome sequencing with short overlapping amplicons on MiSeq FGx system
This MPS strategy is suitable for the whole Mitogenome sequencing especially for degraded samples and can facilitate generating mitogenome data to support the routine application in forensic sciences.
Performance of the Early Access AmpliSeq™ Mitochondrial Panel with degraded DNA samples using the Ion Torrent™ platform
The efficacy of a novel forensic Panel that recovers high quality mitochondrial sequences from degraded DNA samples is demonstrated, to mimic conditions commonly found in forensic investigations.
Massively parallel sequencing-enabled mixture analysis of mitochondrial DNA samples
Results indicate that mixed mitochondrial DNA samples may be interpreted with the use of MPS technologies, although the mixed haplotypes could not be completely parsed.

Sequencing strategy for the whole mitochondrial genome resulting in high quality sequences
This elaborated sequencing strategy is straightforward and allows for an unambiguous sequence analysis and interpretation including sometimes challenging phenomena such as point and length heteroplasmy that are relevant for the investigation of forensic and clinical samples.
