DNA technology is the latest and most powerful technique used in forensic biology at the moment with new additions nearly every few weeks. Therefore, this paper is designed to make the students well equipped with the DNA technology used with reference to forensic science. First unit introduces both the chromosomal and extra chromosomal DNA with the markers of interest to forensics. The second unit deals with the extraction and amplification procedures with emphasis on PCR. Sequencing

rd th

and STR analysis is dealt with in the 3unit. 4unit is a summarization of bioinformatics, it touches upon phylogenetics, and human genetic disorders too.
