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. Credit:RZSS The DNA from the horn was matched to a blood sample take from an African white rhino called ‘Simba’ who had been housed at Colchester [more...]

306 - The Genetic Map of Europe | Strange Maps | Big Think

Which means that forensic scientists now can use DNA to predict the region of origin of otherwise unknown persons (provided they are of European heritage). These are among the conclusions to be drawn from a genetic map of Europe, produced by the Erasmus University Medical Center in Rotterdam (the Netherlands), published in Current Biology’s August 7 issue. In its Science section, the New York Times devotes an article to the study, and reproduces the genetic map. The discovery that autosomal (i.e. non-gender-related) aspects of DNA may be used to predict regional European provenance of [more...]

fenian32: Colin Duffy sexually violated in prison search, court told

The court was told that DNA samples taken from a seatbelt, in what is believed to have been the getaway car, and the tip of a latex glove that was found in the vehicle, match DNA samples taken from Duffy and therefore link him to the car. An apparent attempt to burn the car, which had been bought 13 days before the attack through Autotrader for £380, had failed. A forensic scientist told the court that the chance of the DNA found on the latex glove belonging to any other person but Duffy was one in a billion. The probe also heard that DNA on a mobile phone and two matchsticks found inside [more...]

Facts About Home Paternity Testing | I am pregnant!

People who will be using the DNA final results in court and legal proceedings must get laboratory DNA screening instead of the home-test. In legal paternity checks, the court seeks to establish that the DNA samples are monitored to steer clear of tampering or screening by a biased party. Residence paternity assessments are ordinarily performed beyond legal requirements. They’re uncomplicated to obtain since convenience retailers and online shops are selling these kits. As soon as you send the outcomes to the laboratory to analyze, they are sure to keep the outcomes private. As a matter of [more...]

FinchTalk: From Reads to Data Sets, Why Next Gen is not like ...

The first widely-used sequencing systems were based on the “Sanger” method. DNA was synthesized in the presence of chain terminating radioactive dideoxy-nucleotides (1). Mixtures of DNA fragments were separated by size using gel electrophoresis and the bases were identified and entered into a computer through manual techniques. Automated DNA sequencing instruments arrived later. These instruments made DNA sequencing thousands of times more efficient by detecting fluorescently labeled fragments and sending the information directly to a computer (2). For the first time, it became possible [more...]

The lab has come under attack because of a backlog of untested DNA samples. The machine in use tests one sample at a time. Although Hammer said the newer, unused machine will be incorporated in an ongoing IT project that will be finished in eight months, it’s already somewhat out of date, according to its manufacturer. The machine is an ABI Prism 3100 that was purchased in 2004 for $139,587.67, according to Lee Woo, an accounting manager for the city. It’s sold by Life Technologies and was discontinued in 2007. The replacement costs around $200,000, according to Zabi Habibi, a salesman. [more...]

Even then, on Sheriff Reichert's watch, the saliva sample that could have busted Ridgway as early as 1996 when the DNA technology became available, was not tested until 2001. Women died in that interim. In fact, as Part II of Hood's series explains, Reichert actually bungled the case almost from the start of the investigation: Frank Atchley, who supervised Reichert in the 1980s, told the P-I that Reichert "actually was more of an impediment to the investigation. He was probably the worst detective I've ever worked with," Atchley said. "He developed tunnel vision." He's talking about [more...]

As with normal fingerprints, governments around the world have built a database of DNA fingerprints since the late 1980s. DNA often is found on the crime scene in the form of bodily fluids, such as blood. Using these samples, DNA can be compared in a laboratory using gel electrophoresis, which uses a magnetic field to separate the strands of DNA. Unfortunately, especially in the early history of DNA fingerprinting, mistakes were often made. It is estimated that one tenth of a percent of DNA comparisons are incorrectly done.

Biosensors: Morpholino offers you more

Molecular biologists and geneticists often use DNA microarrays to detect DNA, measure gene expression levels and detect the single-nucleotide polymorphisms that are responsible for various genetic diseases. A DNA microarray has tens of thousands of biosensors on its surface; each biosensor contains a short DNA fragment, known as a probe, for recognizing DNA targets. Ideally, the DNA biosensor should have high sensitivity (the ability to detect very low concentrations of targets), high specificity (the ability to distinguish the difference between similar targets) and high stability (the [more...]
