9780123749994: Fundamentals of Forensic DNA Typing

Fundamentals of Forensic DNA Typing is written with a broad viewpoint. It examines the methods of current forensic DNA typing, focusing on short tandem repeats (STRs). It encompasses current forensic DNA analysis methods, as well as biology, technology and genetic interpretation.
This book reviews the methods of forensic DNA testing used in the first two decades since early 1980’s, and it offers perspectives on future trends in this field, including new genetic markers and new technologies. Furthermore, it explains the process of DNA testing from collection of samples through DNA extraction, DNA quantitation, DNA amplification, and statistical interpretation. The book also discusses DNA databases, which play an important role in law enforcement investigations. In addition, there is a discussion about ethical concerns in retaining DNA profiles and the issues involved when people use a database to search for close relatives.
Students of forensic DNA analysis, forensic scientists, and members of the law enforcement and legal professions who want to know more about STR typing will find this book invaluable.

  • Includes a glossary with over 400 terms for quick reference of unfamiliar terms as well as an acronym guide to decipher the DNA dialect
  • Continues in the style of Forensic DNA Typing, 2e, with high-profile cases addressed in D.N.A.Boxes-- "Data, Notes & Applications" sections throughout

From the Back Cover:

Fundamentals of Forensic DNA Typing John M. Butler, Ph.D., NIST Fellow and Group Leader at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) "There is perhaps no individual better suited to author a foundational survey of forensic DNA typing than John Butler. As with past editions, Butler’s knowledge, along with his organizational and communication skills make Fundamentals of Forensic DNA Typing a must read for students, forensic practitioners and trial attorneys. This text provides the reader with insightful and understandable explanations necessary to comprehend the underpinnings of forensic DNA analysis. It continues in the tradition of its predecessors as the premier textbook on the forensic DNA subject." - Richard Saferstein, Ph.D. Author and Forensic Science Consultant "Dr. John Butler has a gift for breaking through jargon and clutter and making the science of forensic DNA typing understandable. Fundamentals of Forensic DNA Typing is a masterful work that will continue to set Butler apart from others who take on this important subject." - Stephen Patrick Hogan, M.A., J.D. Adjunct Professor of Biological Science & Criminal Justice, State University of New York at Albany "I have used John Butler’s book on forensic DNA typing in classrooms and workshops since the first edition appeared in 2001.  The wonderful thing about this book is the clarity of its explanations and its expansive content. ... For anyone interested in getting the clearest and most up to date information on the field of DNA analysis, there is no other book that comes close in terms of content or clarity." - Bruce McCord, Ph.D. Professor of Analytical and Forensic Chemistry, International Forensic Research Institute, Florida International University John Butler, bestselling author of Forensic DNA Typing, now applies his expertise on the subject of DNA analysis into an introductory textbook. Fundamentals of Forensic DNA Typing walks students step-by-step through the DNA analysis process beginning with collection of evidence at a crime scene to the statistical interpretation of the results. Also included are brief discussions of such news worthy topics as victim identification from the September 11, 2001 attacks, the identification of the remains of the Romanovs, the last Russian Royal family, and the O.J. Simpson case. New applications, such as genetic genealogy and tracing domestic pet hairs to perpetrators, are also detailed. With its clear and understandable style and extensive list of online ancillaries and study aids, this textbook will make the subject accessible to students in forensic science courses worldwide.
