Cat DNA Can Aid in Criminal Investigations | easyDNA Blog
If you have ever inquired about a hair DNA test or know some of the basics of DNA you may know that DNA is found throughout nucleated cells in the body. Since hairs are simply made up of protein then we know that there is no nuclear DNA in hair. The same applies for cats- there is no nuclear DNA in cat hair. However, cat hair and human hair contain what is known as MtDNA (mitochondrial DNA) and this, like nuclear DNA, is unique to each of us. Cat DNA convicts murderer A body was found in a grave on Prince Edward Island, Canada. Police investigators identified the body as belonging to Shirley [more...]

The street value of prescription medications have steadily increased and the ease of getting prescription medications have also increased due to generic low cost alternatives. For example, take Xanax. One can acquire a bottle of generic Xanax for approximately $4.50 from any major pharmacy in the US. Each pill has a street value of approximately $5-10 dollars. This is scary! What is more astounding is that there are so many prescriptions written each year where the bottles generally go untouched!

An analysis of hair strands -- apparently the remains of haircuts in the possible men's house -- showed that people ate caribou and salmon year-round.

Leadership in the village of Quinhagak agreed today to let Knecht do DNA analyses of the hair, which might tell if the piles of locks came only from males. If so, it could be a good sampling of the village's male population. Teams of diggers also found many big animal shoulder bones that may have been used as snow shovels.
