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 single sperm cells and single skin flakes in forensics using micromanipulation and whole genome amplification. (2020)
Thesis
THEUNISSEN, G.M.G. 2020. DNA profiling of single sperm cells and single skin flakes in forensics using micromanipulation and whole genome amplification. Robert Gordon University [online], PhD thesis. Available from: https://openair.rgu.ac.uk

In forensic DNA profiling, the occurrence of complex mixed profiles is currently a common issue. Cases involving intimate swabs or skin flake tape liftings are prone to mixed profiles, because of more than one donor contributing to a DNA sample. By D...
