Forensics - DNA analysis

DNA analysis DNA typing (genotyping) History A marker is any polymorphic Mendelian character that can be used to follow a chromosomal segment through a pedigree. Phenotypical markers: E.g. blood groups Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism

(RFLP) markers The discovery of restriction enzymes not only provided a way to engineer the DNA, but for the first time, provided a marker that encompassed entire chromosome. Forensics DNA analysis RFLP

History Southern analysis Fragment length analysis Frequency Pattern used to identify individuals Minisatellite Variable Repeat Polymorphism (Analysis)

First locus identified: D1S8 1990, Alec Jeffrey 19 bp for each repeat containing highly variable 1 bp in the HaeIII site Hundreds markers give sifficient polymorphism

Forensics DNA analysis Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) Discovery Principles Application examples The case of the Russian Czar The case of English Royals Crime scene identification

Restriction enzymes Blot PCR DNA micro array Better Polymorphism

Increased Density Less Sample Amounts Easier Test More Expensive Length Hybridization Length

Hybridization Finding Common Characteristics of elements ---Can you find common characters in the following figures? 1. These are jollos. 2. These are plotz.

3. Which are jollos and which are plotz? A B C

Suspect & roommate excluded from blood on carpet and shoes. Roommate excluded. Suspect pled to first degree murder. The gender ID marker

The case of disappearing sperm: DQ was the only locus validated for PCR testing in forensics at the time. No conclusion can be drawn from the test results The OJ Simpson case

This was a few years ago. Now SNP typing marker concentration = one million / genome RFLP results 5 and 6; 7 and 9 are
