Abstract

Molecular characterization allowes to identify individuals when potential relatives are available. Conventional DNA typing complemented with PCR-based forensic analyses such as Short Tandem Repeats (STR) and HLA-DQα evaluation broaden the perspectives in forensic field. The possibility of molecular identification of old cadavers was almost impossible Just a few years ago. However, current methodologies made possible the molecular characterization of such remains.
