Title Oral gram-positive bacterial DNA-based identification of saliva from highly degraded samples.
Journal Forensic Sci Int Genet
Abstract ) degradation) samples, but full mtDNA profiles were obtained from all degraded samples. The forensic applicability of bacterial DNA test evaluated, using mock case samples, indicates that the oral gram-positive bacterial DNA was more resistant to degradation than the other markers. We conclude that the oral gram-positive bacterial DNA-based examination could be useful for identifying saliva from severely environmentally-exposed forensic samples as well as mtDNA typing.
