Human Identity (Forensic) Analysis

There is tremendous potential for the use of 2nd generation sequencing, such as the Roche FLX/Junior, Ion PGM platforms or Illumina HiSeq/MiSeq systems in human identity and forensic profiling. It promises to make analysis faster and cheaper because capillary electrophoresis is eliminated and because samples can be barcoded with multiplex identifier (MID) tags and then combined to be analyzed at the same time. Additionally use of this sequencing technology increases the amount of information available such as mitochondria, which is particularly useful in profiling of degraded DNA. Comparing sequence data rather than electrophoresis results allows for the comparison of Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) between samples.


NextGENe is an incredibly powerful tool for working with next generation sequencing for paternity identification, criminal forensic profiling and missing person identification. It is able to accurately align thousands of reads in seconds. The built-in barcode sorting tool makes it easy to work with multiplexed samples and the NextGENe pipeline tool, AutoRun allows for continual, unattended profiling. SNPs are conveniently displayed in the mutation report while STR polymorphisms are counted and the results are displayed in the expression report.
