Comparison of DNA-Extraction Methods from Compact Bone Tissue
Identification of highly decomposed remains of a corpse can be accomplished by DNA-typing (1). In some cases the only source of DNA is sceletal bones. A simple and rapid DNA-extraction method for bone tissue would have use in routine casework as well as in working with a large number of mass disaster victims. In this work we have compared three methods to extract DNA from compact bone tissue.
