Dienekes' Anthropology Blog: DNA tests for asylum seekers

ScienceInsider has some reactions to plans from the UK Border Agency to use DNA tests to verify claims of asylum seekers that they do in fact come from the countries they claim (e.g., Somalia), rather than other ones which do not face the same geopolitical turmoil. This is a real problem for European countries, as many illegal immigrants without documents claim to be from war-zones. I am completely in agreement with the use of DNA tests to substantiate asylum seekers' claims, with the caveat that the followed protocols should be transparent to the scientific community, so that they can be [more...]

Pat'sBlog: Timid Testers and Magic Lassos

But most damning was the fact that the DNA evidence from the semen samples inside the raped victim clearly excluded the suspect. But after all this comes the line, "The police knew they had the right guy..". so they talked the 16 year old into taking a lie detector test, the least accurate investigation tool (other than a DA looking for a conviction) in the police arsenal. After "eight hours in a ten foot by ten foot room, facing in turns Detective McIntyre and Investigatior Stephens." In the end, the young man made a confession.

DNA Testing: The Technology Utilized To Recognize The Offspring

offering wholesale plants, seeds and bulbs from around the world to you. Searching for historical past, especially the seventeenth century, when DNA testing was not doable, the very best solution to determine the parents was by taking a good hard look at the kid, then, followed by a hard look of the father. Sufficient commonalities and a connection could possibly be seen. One century later on, eye color was discovered to be an effective paternal determinant. This supposition has had its inefficiency revealed because of the present DNA improvements. We’re conscious that the eye color is [more...]

For instance, in a recent issue of the Journal of Theoretical Biology, John Bodnar describes how "non-coding DNA in eukaryotic genomes encodes a language which programs organismal growth and development." Design encourages scientists to look for function where evolution discourages it. (William Dembski, "Intelligent Science and Design," First Things, Vol. 86:21-27 (October 1998))In 2002, Dr. Richard Sternberg surveyed the literature and found extensive evidence for function of certain types of junk-DNA and argued that "neo-Darwinian 'narratives' have been the primary obstacle to elucidating [more...]

Special feature: Texas death row DNA case

The fact that the Supreme Court has granted Skinner’s request for a final review of this matter provides an excellent opportunity for the Court to affirm that once a convicted state prisoner has had an adequate opportunity to make a due process challenge to his conviction through a habeas corpus proceeding, other post-conviction proceeds are better left to the states to handle. “I made the decision to defend against this suit with an eye not only on Mr. Skinner’s case but on past and future cases as well.

The Meck Deck » Blog Archive » Yarmolenko Murder: Now What?

Add in the fact that the DNA evidence is slightly more compelling regarding Cassada than Carver and I think we can see where this was headed. But we’ll never know for certain. What we do know is that the DNA evidence is very weak — of the evidence taken from the cords around Yarmolenko neck and under her fingernails, none of it matched Cassada or Carver. This is a near impossibility. Some DNA evidence does suggest that Cassada and possibly Carver may have fiddled with Yarmolenko’s car. That’s it. Other holes abound. Yarmolenko was placed on the Catawba River on the mere SBI [more...]

NewsDaily: Scientists say rare plant has biggest genome yet

With 152.23 picograms (pg) of DNA, the Paris japonica has around 15 percent more than the previous record holder, the marbled lungfish or Protopterus aethiopicus, with 132.83 pg. It is also more than 50 times bigger than the human genome, which is 3.0 picograms. A picogram is one trillionth of a gram. Leitch said the importance of size lies in the fact that the more DNA there is in a genome, the longer it takes for a cell to copy all of its DNA and divide. "The knock-on effect of this is that it can take longer for an organism with a larger genome to complete its life cycle than one with a [more...]

Learn The Basic Process Of DNA Paternity Testing

However, how does DNA testing work? The DNA Paternity Test is conducted by taking DNA sample of the supposed father and the child. The child has a combination of the mother and father’s DNA that is a known fact. Thus, the child’s genome will contain almost equal parts of the mother and the father. The proof of paternity is obtained by comparing the DNA sequences of both the child and the supposed father. If their DNA results match, it means that the supposed father is indeed the child’s biological father. If it doesn’t, then it sets things clear and gives peace of mind to both [more...]

How familial DNA can help crime victims

Using a familial DNA search, the crime lab compared the DNA left at the crime scenes with DNA samples in California's database of 1.3 million felons to search for near matches indicating possible relatives. The familial DNA search turned up 200 partial matches. Researchers then compared the Y chromosome (which is passed from father to son) found at the crime scene to the 200 partial matches. Only one result turned up: Franklin Jr.'s son, who had been convicted of a felony weapons charge. The police subsequently surveilled Franklin Jr. and directly connected him to the serial killings using [more...]

How Fingerprinting Helps In DNA Paternity Testing

This form of fingerprinting method is also known as DNA profiling. Using this technique, the individuals are identified on the basis of their unique DNA profiles. This DNA profiling is done by analyzing the VNTR sequences. It stands for variable number tandem repeats. This sequence is found to be different in individuals except in twins. As per the facts mentioned above, the DNA samples of the child will exhibit the similar VNTR loci as that of their parents. This fingerprinting helps in identifying that whether the known father of a child is genuinely his biological dad. In fact, it is [more...]

Mitochondrial DNA Genealogy

The mitochondrial DNA genealogy is the study of a person’s mother’s family line of maternal ancestors. This DNA is passed down from mother to each of her children exactly as she has it, with no mutations, except in the very rare instances. Because of the traditions in our society of the wife taking her husband’s last name, a surname genealogy trace of the female line of the family tree is more difficult. On the flip side, since this DNA strand is more stable than the Y DNA, more conclusive results can be determined for the testing of it. The mt-DNA is sometimes referred to as the Full [more...]
