This book provides a foundation in the methods of non-human DNA testing along with applications and specific casework examples. The authors detail methods such as light microscopy, DNA sequencing, and computer-generated phylogenies, as well as new applications that use trace material to aid in the identification of missing persons, to track drug distribution patterns, and to link bodies to primary crime scene locations after removal to secondary sites. This book also includes landmark cases involving the use of non-human DNA as evidence and the legal considerations applied to that evidence.
