Hardbound. The genetic markers now used in problems of identification; such as parentage testing and forensics, have moved almost exclusively from the classical protein markers, known collectively as blood groups, to variation polymorphisms directly detectable in the DNA. Moreover, the extensive knowledge and application of VNTR polymorphisms detected using firstly multilocus probe and then single locus probe technology, has now been largely replaced by polymorphisms detected using PCR technology which can utilize far less material and degraded DNA.In this volume it can be seen that the general focus of the forensic science community seems to have gradually turned over the last two years from the investigation of new autosomal markers and population databases, to accelerating exploitation of modern technology and informative new markers in forensics casework. There is no obvious increasing interest in the polymorphism displayed by mtDNA, in Y-chrom

1999 ...this book contains a lot of valuable information...worth buying because the book will undoubtedly be shared by several DNA specialist in the laboratory... -- Hiron Poon, M.Sc., R.C.M. Police Forensic Laboratory Vancouver, Annals of Saudi Medicine Vol. 19/2
June 1999 Other than specialized forensic journals, there are few opportunities to read about the state of DNA analysis in human identification and legal medical investigations. The proceedings of this congress provide an opportunity to get an overview o where the field is developing. -- Gary G.
