DNA Typing on Single Hair — Recent Possibilities Based on New Extraction Method
The analysis of hair is becoming increasingly important in the field of forensic science. It often represents the only element connecting the assailant to the victim, sometimes the only signature of crime, especially in cases of brutal crimes like kidnappings, murders, rapes. Usually, these evidences are collected on the crime scene or are found stuck on various surfaces (hood-caps, cushions, nails, etc.) but they are very limited in number, often only one sample.
