A molecular identification system for grasses: a novel technology for forensic botany

Ward, Jodie; Peakall, Rodney; Gilmore, Scott; Robertson, James


Our present inability to rapidly, accurately and cost-effectively identify trace botanical evidence remains the major impediment to the routine application of forensic botany. Grasses are amongst the most likely plant species encountered as forensic trace evidence and have the potential to provide links between crime scenes and individuals or other vital crime scene information. We are designing a molecular DNA-based identification system for grasses consisting of several PCR assays that, like...[Show more]
