Battelle Memorial Institute, Inc. Releases ExactiID Version 2.0
Oct 7 15
Battelle announced that ExactID Version 2.0, released on October 1, 2015 now supports mitochondrial DNA analysis, microHap analysis, and other advanced genomic methods that allow researchers to pull more information out of challenging DNA samples. ExactID is the commercial forensic genomics software system that lets forensic investigators harvest the power of next-generation sequencing data from a variety of sequencers and in a format suited for routine laboratory analysis. The first version of ExactID analyzed STR (short tandem repeat) markers for database matching and also SNP (single nucleotide polymorphism) data to provide predictions of physical appearance, ancestry and familial relationships among people. This allows forensic analysts to extract valuable information from DNA samples even when they dont return any matches from existing databases. Version 2.0 adds new DNA analysis options that provide even greater utility for forensic investigators. Mitochondrial DNA analysis provides important information about female line lineage for unknown samples. It can be used to identify relatives in missing persons cases or to include or exclude a potential suspect. Because each cell contains hundreds of mitochondria and only a single nucleus, mitochondrial analysis can yield results when there is not enough nuclear DNA for traditional STR or SNP analysis. This makes it a useful technique for degraded DNA samples or very limited DNA samples, such as a single hair follicle. ExactID 2.0 also incorporates MicroHap marker analysis, another powerful genomic technique for finding potential matches or ancestry predictions from degraded samples. The new MicroHap class of markers provides more accurate results than is possible with SNP markers in mixed DNA samples. This will help investigators examining real-world evidence in sexual assault cases and other situations where multiple peoples DNA is mixed in a single sample. The new version also includes an updated user interface and display. Battelle plans to continue to expand capabilities for ExactID as genomic forensics develops. ExactID is distributed by NicheVision Inc. and available to forensic labs worldwide. Beyond forensics, the technology has applications for medical assays, environmental research and food safety.
Battelle Appoints Mark Wilson as Research Leader
Oct 6 15
Battelle announced that Dr. Mark Wilson, genomics researcher with decades of experience in forensic science, is joining the Applied Genomics team as a Research Leader. Wilson will lead research and development for Battelles next-generation DNA sequencing technologies, including ExactID, and provide training and support for Battelles forensic clients. Since then, he has worked in academic settings. He served as the Director of the Forensic Science Program at Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, NC where he was been involved in the development of next-generation DNA sequencing technology, also called Massively Parallel Sequencing, and its application to forensic evidence. In his new role at Battelle, he will be focused on driving the adoption of next-generation DNA sequencing technologies in crime laboratories. His future research will be focused on bringing new analytical techniques to forensics laboratories, including work on mitochondrial DNA and microbial forensics. Some of these emerging technologies may allow forensic scientists to ascertain where in the world a person has been based on the distribution of microorganisms and pollen grains on their skin or clothing. Wilson also sees potential for applying predictive analytics to forensic work.
