11. Characterization of 26 miniSTR loci for improved analysis of degraded DNA samples
Topic: Forensics
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 ...

12. Characterization of New miniSTR Loci to Aid Analysis of Degraded DNA
Topic: Forensics
Published: 1/1/2005
Authors: Michael D Coble, John M Butler

13. Characterization of mtDNA SNP typing and mixture ratio assessment with simultaneous real-time PCR quantification of both allelic states
Topic: Forensics
Published: 1/1/2006
Authors: H. Niederstatter, Michael D Coble, P. Grubwieser, T. J. Parsons, W. Parson

14. Chemical Imaging of Artificial Fingerprints by Desorption Electro-Flow Focusing Ionization Mass Spectrometry
Topic: Forensics
Published: 5/19/2014
Authors: Thomas P Forbes, Edward Ryan Sisco
Abstract: Desorption electro-flow focusing ionization (DEFFI) mass spectrometry was used to image chemical distributions of endogenous, e.g., fatty acids, and trace exogenous compounds, e.g., explosives, narcotics and lotions, in deposited and lifted artificia ...

15. Concordance Study Between the AmpFlSTR((R)) MiniFiler(TM) PCR Amplification Kit and Conventional STR Typing Kits
Topic: Forensics
Published: 7/25/2007
Authors: Carolyn R Steffen, Margaret C Kline, Julio J Mulero, Robert E Lagace, Chien-Wei Chang, Lori K Hennessy, John M Butler
Abstract: The AmpFlSTR MiniFiler PCR Amplification kit developed by Applied Biosystems enables size reduction on eight of the larger short tandem repeat (STR) loci amplified in the Identifiler kit, which will aid recovery of information from highly degraded D ...

16. DNA Commission of the International Society of Forensic Genetics (ISFG): An update of the recommendations on the use of Y-STRs in forensic analysis
Topic: Forensics
Published: 3/10/2006
Authors: L. Gusmao, John M Butler, A. Carracedo, P. Gill, M. Kayser, W. R. Mayr, N. Morling, M. Prinz, L. Roewer, C. Tyler-Smith, P. M. Schneider

17. Demonstration of Rapid Multiplex PCR Amplification Involving 16 Genetic Loci
Topic: Forensics
Published: 12/1/2008
Authors: Peter M Vallone, Carolyn R Steffen, John M Butler
Abstract: Current forensic DNA typing is conducted in approximately eight to ten hours with steps including DNA extraction, quantitation, polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification of multiple short tandem repeat (STR) loci, capillary electrophoresis separa ...

18. Desorption Electro-Flow Focusing Ionization of Explosives and Narcotics for Ambient Pressure Mass
Topic: Forensics
Published: 8/6/2013
Authors: Thomas P Forbes, Timothy M Brewer, John G Gillen
Abstract: Desorption electro-flow focusing ionization (DEFFI), a desorption-based ambient ion source, was developed and evaluated as a possible source for field deployable ambient pressure mass spectrometry (APMS). DEFFI, based on an electro-flow focusing syst ...
