Two Novel Multiplex INDEL Assays for use with Degraded DNA Samples

Most commercially available STR kits yield amplified fragments with lengths between 100 and 500 base pairs. However degraded biological samples typically are fragmented into pieces of approximately 180-200bps. When samples have been degraded to fragments less than 500 base pairs, many of the loci in STR amplification kits, fail to yield amplification products. INDELs are […]
