Concordance testing with the new STR kits and the influence on the Swiss National DNA database


Dion, D; Sulzer, A; Kratzer, A (2011). Concordance testing with the new STR kits and the influence on the Swiss National DNA database. Forensic Science International: Genetics Supplement Series, 3(1):e85-e86.

Abstract

The European Network of Forensic Science Institutes (ENFSI) and the European DNA Profiling Group (EDNAP) recommended the extension of the European Standard Set by 5 additional loci regarding international DNA data exchange based on the treaty of Prüm. This recommendation launched the development of new STR kits by-amongst others-Promega and Applied Biosystems (AB). Despite not being part of the EU nor the treaty of Prüm, Switzerland has decided to implement the new STR kits (including SE33). We therefore decided to conduct an in-house concordance study with 1498 reference samples analyzed with AmpFlSTR® SEfiler Plus™ and AmpFlSTR® NGM SElect™ (AB) and PowerPlex® ESX 17 and PowerPlex® ESI 17 (Promega). The concordance rate of the samples between the STR kits was greater than 99.967%.

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.
