1. A New NIST Mitochondrial DNA Interactive Website
Topic: Homeland Security/Forensics/Human Identity
Published: 8/1/2002
Authors: Barbara C. Levin, L A. Tully, Diane K. Hancock, Frederick P. Schwarz, M S Lee
Abstract: Every human cell has from a few dozen to several thousand mitochondria each of which contain mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA). The sequence of the entire human mtDNA (16,569 base pairs) was determined and published by Anderson et al. in 1981. A mtDNA stan ...

2. A global analysis of Y-chromosomal haplotype diversity for 23 STR loci
Topic: Homeland Security/Forensics/Human Identity
Published: 4/28/2014
Authors: Michael D Coble, Carolyn R Hill

3. Advanced Topics in Forensic DNA Typing: Interpretation (textbook)
Topic: Homeland Security/Forensics/Human Identity
Published: 9/1/2014
Author: John M Butler
Abstract: This book is primarily intended for DNA analysts or those trying to understand what a DNA analyst does in his or her review of forensic DNA data that was obtained by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification and short tandem repeat (STR) typing v ...

Topic: Homeland Security/Forensics/Human Identity
Published: 12/1/1991
Author: M Miral Dizdar

5. Comparison of Base Composition Analysis and Sanger Sequencing of Mitochondrial DNA for four U.S. Population Groups
Topic: Homeland Security/Forensics/Human Identity
Published: 10/8/2013
Authors: Kevin M Kiesler, Michael D Coble, Thomas Hall, Peter M Vallone
Abstract: A set of 711 samples from four U.S. population groups was analyzed using a novel mass spectrometry based method for mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) base composition profiling. Comparison of the mass spectrometry results with Sanger sequencing derived ...

6. Demographic expansions in South America: enlightening a complex scenario with genetic and linguistic data
Topic: Homeland Security/Forensics/Human Identity
Published: 1/22/2013
Authors: Michael D Coble, V Ramallo, R Biso-Machado, C Bravi, F M Salzano, T Hunemeier, MC Bortolini
Abstract: Native Americans are characterized by specific and unique patterns of genetic and cultural/linguistic diversities, and this information has been used to understand patterns of geographic dispersion, and the relationship between these peoples. Par ...

7. Development of Methods and Standards for the Analysis of Human Hair for Drugs of Abuse
Topic: Homeland Security/Forensics/Human Identity
Published: 12/1/1991
Authors: Michael James Welch, C.C. Allgood, Lorna Tregoning Sniegoski, Willie E May

8. Developmental validation of the PowerPlex 21 System.
Topic: Homeland Security/Forensics/Human Identity
Published: 12/24/2013
Authors: Carolyn R Hill, Martin G. Ensenberger, Robert S. McLaren, Cynthia J. Sprecher, Douglas R. Storts
Abstract: The PowerPlex(®) 21 System is a STR multiplex that has been optimized for casework samples while still being capable of database workflows including direct amplification. The loci included in the multiplex offer increasing overlap with core loci ...

9. Evaluation of a drop-on-demand micro-dispensing system for development of artificial fingerprints
Topic: Homeland Security/Forensics/Human Identity
Published: 12/7/2012
Authors: Jessica L Staymates, Matthew E Staymates, John G Gillen
Abstract: Precision micro-dispensing is a growing technique that has many applications in the scientific and additive manufacturing communities. Piezoelectric inkjet printing is capable of accurately dispensing exceedingly small volumes of low-viscosity soluti ...

10. Extended Feature Set Profile Specification
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1134
Topic: Homeland Security/Forensics/Human Identity
Published: 1/14/2013
Authors: Melissa K Taylor, Will Chapman, Austin Hicklin, George Kiebuzinski, John Mayer-Splain, Rachel Wallner, Peter Komarinski
Abstract: This specification defines Extended Feature Set (EFS) Profiles - sets of features to be used in latent friction ridge (fingerprint, palmprint or plantar) searches of automated friction ridge identification systems (AFIS). The EFS Profiles are des ...
