DNA presentation at Human Identification symposium

Promega : 06 October, 2008  (Company News)
Promega will make a presentation on DNA and the ultimate record of evolution at this year's human identification symposium being held in Hollywood
The expanding power of DNA analysis is a key focus of this year's 19th International Symposium on Human Identification hosted by Promega Corporation. This year, speaker Dr Sean Carroll will discuss the utility of DNA as the "Ultimate Record of Evolution." Additional presentations will feature methods used to identify the slain children of Czar Nicholas who were murdered during the Bolshevik Revolution and advanced technologies used to identify a murderer in a serial murder case in Canada that claimed the lives of nearly 50 women.

New methods in DNA analysis which are advancing processes in the crime lab will be highlighted throughout the symposium presentations and discussions. "Because DNA analysis methods and throughput capacity are advancing exponentially, DNA analysts face growing pressures to improve laboratory processes and efficiency," explains Promega Genetic Identity Director Len Goren. "The annual symposium on human identification provides a focused forum for DNA analysts to learn new techniques, discuss difficult questions and share their approaches to the complex cases that arise."

The popular "Interesting Cases" session will spotlight some of the more unusual cases that were solved through the application of DNA analysis. Cases involve the usual line-up of unexpected circumstances and surfaces generating DNA clues including: the "roll" of duct tape, the appetite of a burglar and the use of a vehicle as a weapon.

The symposium runs from October 13th to the 16th at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel, 1755 North Highland Avenue, Hollywood, CA 90028.
