Abstract

The ability to analyse by PCR-based methods trace amounts of human DNA isolated from old bone material (Hagelberg et al. 1989; Hochmeister et al. 1991) offers the opportunity to identify unknown skeletal remains by a comparative genetic analysis with their presumptive relatives (Hagelberg et al. 1991; Gill et al. 1994).
