Future Trends in Forensic DNA Technology
Featuring Rachel Oefelein, Director of Research and Innovation,
and Senior DNA Analyst at DNA Labs International
Discover new approaches for more efficient analysis of skeletal remains in this webinar, part 5 of a 6-part series presented by Thermo Fisher Scientific. Sheree Hughes from Sam Houston State University will present a comparison of different methods for DNA extraction from bone—with and without powdering, and with and without automation.
Rachel Oefelein from DNA Labs International will share streamlined rapid DNA protocols for analysis of human remains, enabling fast recovery of discriminating DNA profiles for time‑sensitive investigations such as disaster victim identification (DVI).
1. How different approaches for sample preparation and automation with bones can affect workflow efficiency and downstream STR recovery
2. Streamlined rapid DNA protocols, requiring minimal hands-on time, to recover discriminating DNA profiles from human remains
