Mitotyping Technologies - The clear choice for forensic mitochondrial DNA and STR analysis.

A Mitotyping case, U.S. v. Beverly , was recently reviewed by the Sixth Circuit, and the science of mitochondrial DNA testing was upheld. This is one of the first federal appellate decisions concerning mitochondrial DNA.

Mitotyping Technologies was recently filmed for episodes of Cold Case Files, Forensic Files, and Mystery Hunters. Mystery Hunters is a Canadian childrens' program; this episode covered the mystery of Anna Anderson, claimant to the Romanov family name.

Critical Reading List
For the basics, start with Mitochondrial DNA Basics on this website.
 
We then recommend, at a minimum, the following two articles for courtroom preparation of a mitochondrial DNA case:
 
 
Holland MM and Parsons TJ (1999) Mitochondrial DNA sequence analysis: Validation and use for forensic casework. Forensic Science Review 11:21-50.
 
Isenberg AR and Moore JM (1999) Mitochondrial DNA analysis at the FBI Laboratory. Forensic Science Communications 1(2), http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/lab/forensic-science-communications/fsc/july1999/index.htm/dnalist.htm.
 
 
 
If we instruct you to become informed about mitochondrial DNA heteroplasmy (because it plays a role in your case), this article will be helpful:
 
Melton T (2004) Mitochondrial DNA heteroplasmy.  Forensic Science Reviews 16:1-20.
