Optimized Approaches for Forensic Y-STR Analyses

WebinarsSpeaker: Dr. Lutz Roewer
Please join us for the first of a two-part series on Y-STR analyses. Y-STR analyses have recently gained strong momentum due to the advent of new highly variable STR markers and kits, the continuous flood of high-quality population data, which are accessible in customized online databases, access to new estimation methods for match probabilities and last, but not least, the promise of dense forensic NGS panels, allowing us to sequence larger numbers of Y-STRs and Y-SNPs in parallel with autosomal STRs. Recently new Y-STR multiplex kits that include a number of rapidly mutating Y-STRs were introduced and provide substantially stronger discriminatory power than previous Y-STR panels.
