Abstract

Blood stain gives many informations on forensic science. Human identification of blood stains is essential for forensic practice. Immunological and biochemical methods have been used for the identification of human blood stains. However, it is difficult to determine the species of blood stains except human. In this study, we present the method for human identification by Polymerase chain reaction(PCR) and direct sequencing. This method is useful for not only human identification but also the determination of the species of forensic samples.
