Journal Article
THEUNISSEN, G.M.G., GIBB, A., KONG THOO LIN, P., ROLF, B., FORAT, S. and J√ĄGER, R. 2021. DNA profiling of single sperm cells after whole genome amplification. Forensic science international: reports [online], 4, article 100240. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.fsir.2021.100240

Intimate swabs taken for examination in sexual assault cases typically yield mixtures of sperm and epithelial cell types. While powerful, differential extraction protocols to overcome such cell type mixtures by separate lysis of epithelial cells and...

DNA profiling of sperm cells by using micromanipulation and whole genome amplification. (2017)
Journal Article
THEUNISSEN, G.M.G., ROLF, B., GIBB, A. and JAGER, R. 2017. DNA profiling of sperm cells by using micromanipulation and whole genome amplification. Forensic science international: genetics supplement series [online], 6, pages e497-e499. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.fsigss.2017.09.183

The differential extraction method is based on separate lysis of vaginal cells and spermatozoa and was designed to prevent mixed DNA profiles from intimate swabs. However, DNA from the victim can still be present in the sperm fraction, and the suspec... Read More about DNA profiling of sperm cells by using micromanipulation and whole genome amplification..
