09/25/2010: Forensic DNA Testing for Paternity and Genealogy

Most DNA testing labs collect DNA from cheek cells, saliva, and sometimes blood of living subjects. Many people have asked me if hair or other artifacts can be used to recover DNA. Here is a link to a website that discusses that subject [more...]

PCR Analysis facilitates the capacity to make millions of DNA copies from a single biological sample. This type of analysis enables the forensic scientist to examine small data such as a few skin cells. It also lessens the chances of contamination of the sample, but it requires very meticulous work. Short tandem repeat (STR) technology Short tandem repeat (STR) technology analyzes all 13 Loci (regions )for DNA testing and is the technology used by the FBI databases at the local, state, and federal level.

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...]

But most damning was the fact that the DNA evidence from the semen samples inside the raped victim clearly excluded the suspect. But after all this comes the line, "The police knew they had the right guy..". so they talked the 16 year old into taking a lie detector test, the least accurate investigation tool (other than a DA looking for a conviction) in the police arsenal.

Darwin's God: For What Profit?

But paternity testing and DNA fingerprinting are completely unrelated to the pseudogene example presented by evolutionist Ken Miller at the Kitzmiller trial. This comparison of forensic tests with evolutionary homologies is another common evolutionary canard that evolutionists use to mislead those not familiar with molecular biology. Forensic tests are performed where genealogical relationships are known to exist because they are empirically observed. There’s no question that people have children, and those children’s DNA sequences derive from their parents, grandparents, and so forth. [more...]

Microfluidics and Rapid DNA Analysis « The Writer's Forensics Blog

A recent report from a research group in Birmingham, England and the Center for Applied NanoBioscience and Medicine at the University of Arizona College of Medicine presented a new rapid method for DNA analysis. The researchers state that with a new DNA processing cartridge that they have developed, DNA results can be obtained in as little as four hours. This could be extremely useful to law enforcement though it does have a few drawbacks. After obtaining the analysis I would assume that it would then be uploaded into the CODIS system for comparison. The problem is that CODIS is not complete [more...]

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.

Equally significant is the possibility that the testing of the DNA samples could lead to the exoneration of yet another wrongfully convicted person.
