Characterisation of eight non-codis Ministrs in four South African populations to aid the analysis of degraded DNA
(University of the Western Cape, 2009)
In many forensic cases, such as mass disasters reconstruction cases, the recovered DNA is highly degraded. In such incidences, typing of STR loci has become one of the most powerful tools for retrieving information from ...
Evaluation of insertion-deletion polymorphisms with the kit Qiagen Investigator® DIPplex for forensic application in South Africa
(University of the Western Cape, 2015)
Insertion-deletion polymorphisms (indels) have been underutilized in forensic identification of individuals in comparison with single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and short tandem repeat (STRs) systems. The use of ...
Genetic diversity of the Organic Cation Transporter 1 gene within the Cape Coloured Population
(University of the Western Cape, 2012)
The aim of this study was to investigate the genetic diversity of the SLC22A1 gene and to deduce its possible pharmacogenetic implications within the Cape Coloured population of South Africa; a uniquely admixed population ...
Forensic identification of six of Tanzanian populations using the extended haplotype markers
(University of the Western Cape, 2011)
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the power of discrimination and genetic (diversity) parameters in the Y chromosome extended haploytpe markers in populations of Tanzania for forensic and populations studies. ...
