Siblings Of Autistic Children May Share Some Symptoms - Science News
Researchers have generally limited their search for DNA peculiarities to children diagnosed with autism or related disorders (SN: 7/3/10, p.12), a strategy that overlooks those with mild autism signs, Constantino’s group asserts in a paper published online October 1 in the American Journal of Psychiatry. “Subtle aspects of the autistic syndrome have not been accounted for in most studies of its intergenerational transmission,” Constantino says. By including individuals with mild autism symptoms in DNA studies, researchers could enlarge their sample sizes and amplify the statistical [more...]

EXCLUSIVE: How They Caught Grim Sleeper Suspect Lonnie David ...
Sources tell Los Angeles Weekly that the serial killer was caught through familial DNA testing after his son was arrested and had to give up a DNA swab. A month ago, LAPD detective Dennis Kilcoyne said LAPD was going to try another controversial "familial DNA" matching probe, testing against 1 million samples in the California felon database to find the killer's cousin, brother or uncle. "At least it brings a little bit of closure," Laverne Peters, the mother of victim Janecia Peters, told LA Weekly today. "It is very good news for me. I don't know whether to cry or scream." The science of [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...]

Judge orders LoPorto, McInerney to submit DNA samples - troyrecord.com
Feit, in papers filed with the court, had argued Smith has no authority under the law to seek DNA via a search warrant. Herrick disagreed and ruled the judge-appointed Smith was working in the same capacity a district attorney would, but Feit was adamant outside the courtroom. “That is based on law. This is a nation of laws, I believe,” he said. Both Feit and Long called Smith’s request for DNA a “fishing expedition” in their papers and expressed privacy concerns about whether the DNA samples would enter a database of criminals if no match is made and no charges are brought.

One big concern that DNA matching brings up is the spreading practice of “familial searches.” This happens when the police finds DNA material at the scene of a crime that matches the DNA of a known criminal. Then the police starts investigating his or her family members on the grounds that only those within the same family could have such a similar DNA marker. Civil liberties critics argue that this new version of “guilt by association” violates individual rights as well. Five states including Virginia already allow the DNA scanning of people arrested.

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...]

In 1980, Francis Crick and Leslie Orgel argued in Nature that "much DNA in higher organisms is little better than junk." The spread of junk DNA in the course of evolution "can be compared to the spread of a not-too-harmful parasite within its host." Since it is unlikely that such DNA has a function, "it would be folly in such cases to hunt obsessively for one." In a companion article, W. Ford Doolittle and Carmen Sapienza similarly argued that many organisms contain "DNAs whose only 'function' is survival within genomes," and that "the search for other explanations may prove, if not [more...]
