Collaborative EDNAP exercises on messenger RNA/DNA co-analysis for body fluid identification (blood, saliva, semen) and STR profiling

Abstract

RNA profiling is a new method for the identification of forensically relevant biological stains, such as blood, saliva, semen, vaginal secretions, menstrual blood, sweat and skin. To demonstrate the suitability of mRNA profiling for use in forensic casework, three collaborative exercises on RNA analysis or RNA/DNA co-analysis for body fluid identification (blood, saliva, semen) and STR profiling were organized within the European DNA Profiling Group (EDNAP). The results of these collaborative exercises support the potential use of an mRNA-based system for the identification of body fluids along with conventional DNA profiling.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
