11. Characterization and performance of new MiniSTR loci for typing degraded samples
Published: 4/1/2006
Authors: Michael D Coble, Carolyn R Steffen, Peter M Vallone, John M Butler

12. Setting standards and developing technology to aid the human identity testing community
Published: 4/1/2006
Authors: John M Butler, Michael D Coble, Amy E. Decker, David Lee Duewer, Carolyn R Steffen, Margaret C Kline, Janette W. Redman, Peter M Vallone
Abstract: Our project team at the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is funded by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) to conduct research that benefits the human identity testing community and to create tools that enable forensic DN ...

13. The evaluation of an autosomal SNP 12-plex assay
Published: 4/1/2006
Authors: Peter M Vallone, Amy E. Decker, Michael D Coble, John M Butler
Abstract: SNPs have the potential to play a useful role in human identification testing. Small PCR amplicon sizes associated with SNP typing technologies make SNPs attractive for typing degraded DNA or other low copy number situations. SNP markers can be usefu ...

14. Analysis of DNA Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms by Mass Spectrometry
Published: 3/17/2006
Authors: Peter M Vallone, John M Butler
Abstract: Single nucleotide polymorphisms(SNP) are the most frequent form of DNA sequence variation in the human genome and are becoming increasingly useful as genetic markers for genome mapping studies, medical diagnostics, and human identity testing. The pri ...

15. 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

16. Effective Strategies for Forensic Analysis in the Mitochondrial DNA Coding Region
Published: 1/1/2006
Authors: Michael D Coble, Peter M Vallone, Rebecca S Just, Toni M Diegoli, Brion C Smith, T. J. Parsons
Abstract: Recently, it has been recognized that accessing information in the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) coding region can provide additional forensic discrimination with respect to the standard typing of the D-loop region, augmenting the sometimes rather limite ...

17. Testing Candidate DNA Quantitation Standards with Several Real-Time Quantitative PCR Methods
Published: 9/29/2005
Authors: Margaret C Kline, Peter M Vallone, Amy E. Decker, Janette W. Redman, David Lee Duewer, John M Butler

18. Chromosomal Duplications Along the Y-Chromosome and Their Potential Impact on Y-STR Interpretation
Published: 7/1/2005
Authors: John M Butler, Amy E. Decker, Margaret C Kline, Peter M Vallone
Abstract: Y-chromosome short tandem repeat (Y-STR) markers are being touted as potential tools for distinguishing low levels of male DNA in the presence of excess female DNA as is present in many sexual assault samples. Usually single copy Y-STR loci produce a ...

19. Genotyping SNPs Using a UV Photocleavable Oligonucleotide in MALDI-TOF MS
Published: 3/17/2005
Authors: Peter M Vallone, K Fahr, M Kostrzewa
Abstract: Matrix assisted laser desorption time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) coupled with allele specific primer extension is a proven method for typing single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). A novel modification upon this methodology is the in ...

20. Mitochondrial DNA Typing Screens With Control Region and Coding Region SNPs
Published: 3/1/2005
Authors: Margaret C Kline, Peter M Vallone, Janette W. Redman, David Lee Duewer, C D Calloway, John M Butler
Abstract: Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) analysis has found an important niche in forensic DNA typing. It is used with highly degraded samples or low-copy number materials such as might be found from shed hair or bones exposed to severe environmental conditions. ...
