Day by day workshop schedule

Workshop 1:

Application of next generation sequencing in forensic DNA analysis.

Our new series of next generation sequencing (NGS) solutions can help you resolve tough cases by getting more information from challenging samples. We’ve developed simple, scalable, and fast solutions by utilising Ion Torrent™ next-generation sequencing and Ion AmpliSeq™ technologies to create forensically-relevant panels and reporting tools.


Workshop 2:

Y-STRs for casework and database application

Y-STR analysis is a valuable tool in certain forensic applications such as sexual assault cases, tracing family relationships among males, missing person investigations and paternity testing. Our strategy therefore is to develop an enhanced Y-STR multiplex that combines well-known loci as well as recently characterised highly discriminating Y-STRs into a single reaction.
