Validation of an STR peak area model

Article English OPEN
Cowell, R.;

In analyzing a DNA mixture sample, the measured peak areas of alleles of STR markers amplified using the polymerase chain-reaction (PCR) technique provide valuable information concerning the relative amounts of DNA originating from each contributor to the mixture. This ... View more
