Abstract

Sex determination in forensic samples is of crucial importance in some cases. Recently, two sex-determination methods that exploit the PCR technique has been reported. The first is based on amplification of the repetitive DYZ3/DXZ1 sequences [1] while in the second the simple copy homologous AMGL/AMG genes are amplified [2].
