DNA obtained 47 48 Forensic DNA Analysis from crime scene evidence is included in the evidentiary (crime scene) database. National databases are extremely important for law enforcement involving crimes committed by repeat offenders. They also help in cases of crimes committed by the same individual in different jurisdictions (states, counties). Requirements for submission of a DNA specimen vary from state to state. Some states now include or will soon include all individuals arrested for any serious criminal activity (misdemeanors and felonies).

Mixtures of DNA must be interpreted by analyzing peak Interpretation of Autosomal STR DNA Analysis Alternatively, the homozygous genotype could be 12,12, and the heterozygous genotype 7,12. 5). The multiplex kits are also designed in such a way that, if all DNA samples are quantified to be within a specific range (approximately 1–5 ng), the resulting peak heights at all loci will be within 25% to 30% of each other (experimentally determined). If alleles are markedly different in peak heights, a mixture of template DNAs should be considered.

2 The polymerase chain reaction amplifies the quantity of template DNA in the sample. Heating causes the strands of the template DNA to separate; cooling allows the primers to bind to single stranded template DNA; raising the temperature allows new complementary DNA to be formed by extension from the primers. Each cycle of the reaction results in a doubling of the target DNA. After 30 cycles, billions of copies of the region of interest are replicated. 2). In the first step (denaturation), the DNA is heated to about 94°C to separate the double-stranded DNA segment, or sequence, into two strands.
