Wildlife crime case solved with the help of RZSS scientists ...

Wildlife forensic scientists were able to analyse fragments of the horn and they were not only able to use the DNA from the horn to identify which species of animal the horn belonged to but also the individual zoo animal from which the horn had been taken. This helped investigators to solve the mystery the horn’s origin. The horn came from a white rhino like this one. A white rhino's front horn can grow to be over a metre in length.

DNA Testing Is A Slippery Slope For Casey Anthony Attorney's

I was shocked that the State of Florida had not already tested this bag and the contents inside for DNA, but apparently they have not. That said, I believe it is a huge mistake for Casey Anthony attorney's Jose Baez and Cheney Mason to focus attention on the science of DNA testing. DNA testing is a wonderful tool that has put many guilty people in prison and set free others who were not guilty. Since I believe Casey Anthony killed Caylee, for her attorney's to start desiring more DNA testing - they are placing on the public and legal record their trust and confidence in a science, which [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...]

Child Visitation, Legitimation and Paternity

In the state of North Carolina, in the event that a couple experiences a divorce process and one parent includes primary physical custody of any child or children, the other parent will likely be awarded visitation rights in pretty much every situation.

Which means instead of “visiting” the child, the non-custodial parent is viewed as having secondary [more...]
