1. A Novel Multiplex for Simultaneous Amplification of 20 Y Chromosome STR Markers
Published: 9/10/2002
Authors: John M Butler, R Schoske, Peter M Vallone, Margaret C Kline, A J Redd, M F Hammer
Abstract: A multiplex PCR assay capable of simultaneously amplifying 20 Y-chromosome short tandem repeat (STR) markers has been developed to aid human identity testing and male population studies. These markers include all of the Y STRs that make up the extend ...

2. A Review of the DNA Standard Reference Materials Developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology
Published: 6/1/2001
Authors: Barbara C. Levin, He Cheng, Margaret C Kline, Janette W. Redman, Kristy L. Richie
Abstract: The Standard Reference Materials Program at the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has three human DNA Standard Reference Materials (SRM 2390, SRM 2391a, and SRM 2392) currently available. Both the DNA Profiling SRM 2390 and ...

3. 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 ...

4. Allele Frequencies for 15 Autosomal STIR Loci on U.S. Caucasian, African American, and Hispanic Populations
Published: 7/1/2003
Authors: John M Butler, R Schoske, Peter M Vallone, Janette W. Redman, Margaret C Kline
Abstract: A total of 700 DNA samples from 3 U.S. Populations were examined at 15 different short tandem repeat (STR) markers commonly used is human identity testing. this manuscript simply describes the allele frequencies observed with our samples, which were ...

5. Allele frequencies for 27 Y-STR loci with U.S. Caucasian, African American, and Hispanic samples
Published: 1/27/2006
Authors: John M Butler, Amy E. Decker, Peter M Vallone, Margaret C Kline

6. An Investigation of Discrimination Capacity and the Cause of Null Alleles in Linear Array Mitostrips Using Control Region Sequence Data.
Published: Date unknown
Authors: Michael D Coble, Margaret C Kline, Janette W. Redman, Amy E. Decker, Peter M Vallone, John M Butler
Abstract: Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) analysis of forensic evidentiary materials such as degraded bones and shed hairs can provide the forensic scientist with some genetic information especially when highly discriminatory systems, such as nuclear STRs, completel ...

7. Biological Evidence Preservation: Considerations for Policy Makers
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8048
Published: 4/14/2015
Authors: Shannan R Williams, Melissa K Taylor, Susan M Ballou, Mark David Stolorow, Margaret C Kline, Phylis S Bamberger, Larry Brown, Rebecca Brown, Burney Yvette, Davenport Dennis, Lindsay DePalma, Ted Hunt, Cynthia E. Jones, Ralph Keaton, William Kiley, Joseph Latta, Karen Thiessen, Gerry LaPorte, Linda E Ledray, Randy Nagy, Brian Ostrom, Linda Schwind, Stephanie Stoiloff
Abstract: Biological Evidence Preservation: Considerations for Policy Makers is a policy brief intended to provide guidance to legislators, advocates, and managers within criminal justice agencies that influence policy. The content in this document is info ...

8. Biotech SRMs Designed for the Rapidly Evolving Forensic DNA and Human Identity Testing Communities
Published: 8/1/2003
Authors: Margaret C Kline, David Lee Duewer, John M Butler
Abstract: As advances in biotechnology have been applied to human identification, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has provided Standard Reference Material (SRM ) to aid the forensic community to assure the quality of their measuremen ...

9. 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 ...

10. Characterization of Novel Alleles and Duplication Events in the Y-STR Loci DYS19, DYS439, DYS389II and DYS385
Published: Date unknown
Authors: E Salata, F Barni, C Rapone, A Berti, G Lago, John M Butler, Margaret C Kline
Abstract: During the study of Y haplotype distribution of the Short Tandem Repeat (STR) loci included in the commercial kits PowerPlex Y System (Promega Corporation) and AmpFlSTR Yfiler PCR Amplification Kit (Applied Biosystems) we sampled 110 individuals ac ...
