Human remains identified as those of Alice Donovan | SCNOW

The remains werefirst sent to a lab at the University of South Carolina for possible mitochondrial DNA extraction and testing. But forensic scientists at the state crime lab weren’t able to pull enough DNA from the skeletal remains for a positive identification. The Horry County Police Department since had been in contact with the Health Science Center at the University of North Texas, where the remains — along with DNA swabs taken during the Jan. 27 search from Gilchrist and Warner — were sent for additional testing, Horry County Police Sgt.

Article Snack » Where To Learn More About Proof Of Paternity

Using the coming of DNA testing these days, paternity can be established with almost 100% accuracy. Except for identical twins, your DNA is as distinctive as your fingerprint. DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) denotes your genetic makeup like the color of your hair and eyes, skin color, height, and others. The youngster gets 50% of his DNA from his mum and also the other half derives from his dad. Comparing the child’s DNA with that in the biological mom will get rid of the genes inherited from her. What remains are the DNA of the father. A comparison of probes between the father, mother and [more...]

To increase the speed of forensic DNA testing, the scientists built a chip that can copy and analyze DNA samples taken from a cotton swab. Forensic technicians can collect DNA from suspects by swabbing their mouth, mixing the sample with a few chemicals, and warming it up. The DNA-testing-lab-on-a-chip does the rest. The entire process takes only four hours at present. Hopwood and Zenhausern teams are already optimizing it and reducing the cycle time down to two hours. Once that is done, police could even double-check their DNA evidence before releasing a suspect. Source : American Chemical [more...]

Daytona Beach Cops Use Serial Killer as Excuse to take and record ...

Taking a DNA sample using a cheek swab is a Fourth Amendment search that would normally require a warrant. See Kohler v. Englade, 470 F.3d 1104 (5th Cir. 2006). It certainly looks like the police don't have warrants here. The question then becomes if some exception to the warrant requirement applies to make the cheek swab reasonable. It may be that the officers are only asking targets for consent to give up a DNA sample. If that's the case, the swabs are constitutional under the consent exception. It also may be that the officers are only getting cheek swabs when they arrest someone. If [more...]

Paternity Blood Test | Diet and Health Tips & Products Reviews

Today, the most accurate tests (99.99%) to determine the paternity of a child are made through DNA. Collecting DNA sample is done two ways: Buccal swab (swabbing the inside of the cheek) and blood samples. Known as PCR (polymerase chain reaction), the procedure is used in comparing samples of the childís DNA with that of the alleged father. Since the childís DNA is a fairly equal combination of DNA of his parents, excluding the DNA of the mother gives us a genetic profile of the biological father. However, before science knew how to isolate DNA, blood samples were the standard in a variety [more...]
