- ... MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have been of interest in forensic science for body fluid identification with recent years. However, there is no study investigating the species specificity of miRNA markers by the SYBR Green method. Due to the conservation of miRNAs across species, miRNA markers maybe less species-specific than mRNA markers, and in forensic cases, animal buccal swabs are more likely to appear. T ...

- ... During criminal investigations trace DNA samples, including fingermarks, are submitted to laboratories for short tandem repeat (STR) analysis. For most common STR analysis systems a minimum amount of input DNA is required. Upon intake by the forensic laboratory the DNA concentration is estimated using quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) analysis after which most fingermarks are excluded. ...
