Abstract

DNA analysis by PCR-based polymorphisms is routinely carried out in the forensic laboratory. The most relevant advantage of the in vitro amplification is the high sensitivity of this technique that permits successful characterisations from nanograms of (also degraded) DNA samples (Bloch, 1991; Reynolds and Sensabaugh, 1991).
