Abstract

In the last years DNA technology became increasingly important in the forensic medicine. Conventional forensic serological analysis consists of the detection of genetic polymorphisms at the protein level, while DNA typing involves the study of individual variation directly at the level of nucleotide sequence. Today, DNA evidence is generally accepted by courts and greatly assists the resolution of criminal and civil investigations. This article reviews how molecular techniques used to detect genetic polymorphism in forensic science.
