Microsatellite Dna Polymorphism Analysis in a Case of Illegal Cattle Purchase
Traditionally, illegal animal purchasing has been difficult to prove, especially in two cases: Young animals not-registered yet in the official genealogical book, and those animals not registered because they don’t belong to any pure breed. Microsatellite Short Tandem Repeat (STR) DNA polymorphism is currently used in human forensic medicine as a powerful tool to solve criminal cases with a high degree of accuracy in a short period of time. However, this practice is not common in criminal cases affecting animals of different species.
