Summary

The second edition of this highly successfull book includes the latest information on DNA typing systems, Y chromosome material and mitochondrial DMNA markers. New chapters cover statistical genetic analysis of DNA data, an emerging field of interest to DNA research. Several chapters on statistical analysis of short tandem repeat (STR) typing data have been contributed by Dr. George Carmody, a well-respected professor in forensic genetics. Specific examples make the the concepts of population genetics more understandable.

Features & Benefits

  • The only book available that specifically covers detailed information on mitochondrial DNA and the Y chromosome
  • Chapters cover the topic from introductory level right up to cutting edge research
  • High-profile cases are addressed throughout the book, near the sections dealing with the science or issues behind these cases.
