Abstract

Adhesive tapes are commonly used by Police Forces to collect Gun Shot Residues (GSR). In a previous experiment (Torre C. and Gino S., submitted to J. Forensic Sci.) it was observed that enough DNA can be extracted, amplified and typed for the HLA-DQa locus (Saiki et al., 1986), in order to attribute with certainty a GSR stub and/or to obtain samples for DNA analyses.
