What Is Involved In A Crime Scene Cleanup | Crime and DNA

It is important that the site of a death or violent crime is cleaned promptly and thoroughly by a professional who carries the appropriate skills and equipment. Asan expert in crime scene cleanup, Bill Tyrrell, who runs Triage BioClean Services, explains here what a crime scene cleanup is all about and some techniques he uses. When a serious accident, death or violent crime occurs in a home, it is often damaging to the house itself. Frequently, the scene of the unfortunate occurrence is left tainted and dirtied. Cleaning the sites of these events can be distressing and harrowing to the [more...]

Why You Should Have A DNA Ethnicity Test

Another important reason to have a DNA ethnicity test is to ascertain your legal rights. As in the case of many Native Americans of mixed ethnic backgrounds, establishing the fact that they really are a member of the tribe might entitle them to some hefty monetary benefits along with additional legal rights that are afforded to Native American tribes because they act as their own government. But many individuals have a DNA ethnicity test merely because they wish to learn more regarding their ancestry. In this day and age having a mixed heritage is something to be proud of instead of [more...]

Technology Review: A Portable DNA Detector

A new portable DNA analyzer performs real-time analysis of blood samples left at the scene of a crime. Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, developed the device, which packs microfluidics, electronics, optics, and chemical detection technology into a single briefcase-sized unit. "While previous groups have developed lab-on-a-chip systems, none of them have succeeded in making a completely portable, robust system that can be used at a scene," says team leader Richard Mathies. On-site CSI: After a blood sample is collected from the scene of a crime, this briefcase-sized [more...]

Plasmid DNA Recovery Using Size-Exclusion and Perfusion ...

Finally, a second size-exclusion chromatography step was carried out to purify the plasmid DNA from other small molecular-weight contaminants. Analytical methods proved that the purified plasmid DNA had a purity of 95% after Sephacryl S1000. Plasmid identity was confirmed by restriction enzyme digestion. Biological activity of the purified plasmid was confirmed in vivo; immunized mice developed a positive antibody response against all HCV structural antigens. This procedure offers an alternative to traditional methods that use organic reagents, mutagenic and toxic compounds, and [more...]

Biologists Tackle Cells' Identity Crisis

The group has now developed and tested a standardized procedure for extracting DNA from cells, doing the fingerprinting and interpreting the results.“Without policing, many investigators may not be motivated to do the necessary tests.” Many researchers already use DNA fingerprinting to test their cell lines, notes Steve Oglesbee, director of the tissue-culture facility at the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center of the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. The ATCC and other repositories have already established fingerprints for some of the most commonly used lines. "We're [more...]

Prenatal Paternity Testing: Know the Facts | easyDNA Blog

Thinking of Prenatal Paternity testing? Know Some basic Information Posted on | May 31, 2010 | No Comments It is not uncommon for people to want to establish paternity before the birth of the child. In such cases prenatal paternity testing can easily solve the issue. You may want to read a bit more about this kind of test to fully understand it. Paternity testing: amniocentesis Amniocentesis is a well-known procedure and was mostly carried out to detect genetic illnesses; however, this type of prenatal paternity test can also be used to solve paternity issues.

Graphene could revolutionize DNA sequencing - physicsworld.com

By feeding individual strands of DNA through nanometre-sized holes, researchers in the Netherlands say they have proved the principle of a revolutionary new DNA sequencing technique. The breakthrough is part of a worldwide race to develop fast and low-cost strategies to analyse these codes that underpin the chemistry of life. The genetic profile – or "genome" – of an organism is determined by recording the full sequence of acid base pairs that make up its DNA. In 2003, the Human Genome Project made history by determining the entire human genetic code – 3 billion DNA base pairs that took [more...]

Insights into watermelon genetic diversity

Insights into watermelon genetic diversity by Jeremy on September 29, 2010 There’s no doubt that most of the time when we non-experts think of genetic diversity in DNA terms, we think about alterations in the actual DNA sequence. Change the genetic code and there’s a chance you change the nature of a gene and as a result change the outward appearance, the phenotype, of an organism. There have been lots of studies relating the differences among species to differences in the DNA code of this sort, but far fewer looking at the differences among varieties of a single species.

DNA Testing Along With Its Advantage In The Modern World

Despite the fact that estimated 200, 000 DNA tests are carried out every year by states needing to sort out child-support and welfare concerns, few persons are eager to perform their own at-home paternity test since they do not realize that the DNA paternity test is not difficult and bothersome thing to perform. Paternity screening requires a simple sample from both the child and probable father. Despite the lack of any sample coming from the mother, DNA paternity test results are around 99.9999% precise – which means that mistake takes place almost impossible. Several companies offer a [more...]

Language Delays Found in Siblings of Children with ...

One striking finding was that among siblings, 20 percent had received a diagnosis of language delay or speech problems early in life. And half of them had particular qualities of speech that are autistic in nature. So the investigators believe that what is aggregating in these families is more than just the full syndrome of autism. In about 11 percent of families, more than one sibling has autism, and in many others, these subtle, quantitative signs and symptoms indicate many undiagnosed children are affected as well. That's important, Constantino says, because in studies involving DNA [more...]

The effect of DNA signals on nucleosome formation, chromatin ...

Much of the human genome is non-coding and it seems likely that at least some of the non-coding DNA is functionally important. However, only little is known about the possible function of the bulk of the human genome. Since essentially all the nuclear DNA is packaged into chromatin, it is likely that functional effects of non-coding DNA are mediated by the chromatin structure. By making use of human genomic sequence information now available, we showed that a specific set of periodic DNA motifs (period-10 VWG/CWB) encoded in genomic DNA is predicted to influence human chromosome function.

That's important, Constantino says, because in studies involving DNA tests, brain imaging or biological comparisons between affected children and their unaffected siblings, researchers traditionally assume undiagnosed children are unaffected. But this study would suggest that's not necessarily the case.

In families with only one child with autism, it was much more common for that child's siblings not to have any evidence of quantitative traits. [more...]
