Published: 5/1/2013
Authors: Carolyn R Steffen, David Lee Duewer, Margaret C Kline, Michael D Coble, John M Butler
Abstract: N/A

12. The Biological Evidence Preservation Handbook: Best Practices for Evidence Handlers
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7928
Published: 4/23/2013
Authors: Susan M Ballou, Margaret C Kline, Mark David Stolorow, Melissa K Taylor, Shannan Williams, Phylis S Bamberger, Burney Yvette, Larry Brown, Cynthia E. Jones, Ralph Keaton, William Kiley, Karen Thiessen, Gerry LaPorte, Joseph Latta, Linda E Ledray, Randy Nagy, Linda Schwind, Stephanie Stoiloff, Brian Ostrom
Abstract: The report of the Technical Working Group on Biological Evidence Preservation offers guidance for individuals involved in the collection, examination, tracking, packaging, storing, and disposition of biological evidence. This may include crime sc ...

13. Standard Reference Material 2366 for Measurement of Human Cytomegalovirus DNA
Published: 3/1/2013
Authors: Ross J Haynes, Margaret C Kline, Blaza Toman, Calum Scott, Paul Wallace, John M Butler, Marcia J Holden
Abstract: Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is one of a number of human viruses that are ubiquitous in human populations, generally cause little illness upon infecting healthy individuals, but can cause life threatening disease in immune-compromised individuals. An i ...

14. Developmental Validation of the PowerPlex® ESI 17 Pro System
Published: 12/27/2012
Authors: Carolyn R Steffen, Margaret C Kline, John M Butler, Robert S. McLaren, Jaynish Patel, Margaret Ewing, Douglas R. Storts, Fabrice Noel, Sophie Dognaux
Abstract: The SE33 locus is one of the most polymorphic markers used in human identification. However, it also possesses multiple microvariants both within the repeat and in the flanking regions. Such flanking region mutations can generate discordant alle ...

15. The Latest and Greatest NIST PCR-based DNA Profiling Standard: Updates and Status of Candidate Standard Reference Material (SRM) 2391c
Published: 11/1/2011
Authors: Margaret C Kline, Carolyn R Steffen, Jamie L Almeida, Erica L Romsos, Michael D Coble, John M Butler
Abstract: Standard Reference Material 2391c (SRM 2391c) PCR-based DNA Profiling Standard is the third renewal of this SRM, originally released in 1995. SRM 2391c consists of 6 candidate components labeled A through F. Components A through D are supplied as gen ...

16. Concordance and Population Studies along with Stutter and Peak Height Ratio Analysis for the PowerPlex® ESX 17 and ESI 17 Systems
Published: 8/1/2011
Authors: Carolyn R Steffen, David Lee Duewer, Margaret C Kline, John M Butler
Abstract: The PowerPlex® ESX 17 and ESI 17 Systems for short tandem repeat (STR) amplification were developed by the Promega Corporation to meet the European Network of Forensic Science Institutes (ENFSI) and the European DNA Profiling (EDNAP) Group recommenda ...

17. STR Sequence Analysis for Characterizing Normal, Variant, and Null Alleles
Published: 8/1/2011
Authors: Margaret C Kline, Carolyn R Steffen, John M Butler, Amy Decker
Abstract: DNA sequence variation is known to exist in and around the repeat region of short tandem repeat (STR) loci used in human identity testing. While the vast majority of STR alleles measured in forensic DNA laboratories worldwide type as ,normalŠ alleles ...

18. Metrology Needs and NIST Resources for the Forensic DNA Community
Published: 6/1/2011
Authors: Michael D Coble, Margaret C Kline, John M Butler
Abstract: With the advent of Forensic DNA profiling in the mid-1980s, this technology has had a positive impact on the criminal justice system, helping to convict the guilty and exonerate the innocent. The field has evolved from focusing on multi-locus markers ...

19. Addressing Y-Chromosome Short Tandem Repeat(Y-STR) Allele Nomenclature
Published: 11/25/2008
Authors: John M Butler, Margaret C Kline, Amy E. Decker
Abstract: Currently 120 different Y-chromosome short tandem repeat (Y-STR) markers are used by various genetic genealogy testing laboratories. In some cases, different laboratories may designate the same Y-STR allele with two different nomenclatures making dat ...

20. Characterization of 26 miniSTR loci for improved analysis of degraded DNA samples
Published: 1/25/2008
Authors: Carolyn R Steffen, Margaret C Kline, Michael Coble, John M Butler
Abstract: An additional 20 novel mini-short tandem repeat (miniSTR) loci have been developed and characterized to aid in the analysis of degraded DNA samples. These new markers produce short PCR products in the target range of 50 150 base pairs (bp) by movi ...
