DNA Fingerprinting Summary


DNA Fingerprinting: An Introduction by Edited by Lorne T. Kirby (Department of Pathology, Department of Pathology, University of British Columbia)

DNA fingerprinting is a revolutionary technique that enables scientists to match minute tissue samples and facilitates scientific studies on the composition, reproduction, and evolution of animal and plant populations. As a tool for positive identification of criminals, it plays a particularly important role in forensic science. The first book to be published in the field, , DNA Fingerprinting is a practical guide to basic principles and laboratory methods as applied to a variety of fields including forensic analysis, paternity testing, medical diagnostics, animal and plant sciences, and wildlife poaching.

DNA Fingerprinting Reviews


An interesting historical document that will also be of some use to those with different perspectives. . . . a good introduction to the basic technology of DNA fingerprinting. For anyone coming to this technique without a strong lab background, the refresher chapter on basic genetic principles is helpful, and the step-by-step approach to major technical procedures is well planned. . . . having this book is hand will save a novice weeks that would otherwise be spent thrashing through primary literature and textbooks to accumulate both the latest techniques and fundamental principles. * Trends in Ecology and Evolution *
The strength of this book rests with its extensive collection of laboratory methodologies pertinent to DNA identification processes. The coverage is comprehensive. . . . extremely readable. * Choice *
An excellent introductory text on DNA fingerprinting covering probes, PCR, hybridization, sample taking, costs, law, ethics, analysis-statistics, guidelines and other techniques relevant to forensics. 4 stars out of 5." * American Association of Forensic Dentists *
Very useful for students and laboratory personnel. * BIOSIS *
