The ForenSeq Kintelligence Workflow

A technical review of the end-to-end sequencing solution for forensic genetic genealogy

Back to Webinars

Forensic genetic genealogy (FGG) has provided the criminal justice community with a powerful tool for generating investigative leads for both cold and contemporary cases. However, current whole genome sequencing and microarray-based methods have created concerns around genetic privacy and fail to address challenges inherent to forensic samples. The ForenSeq Kintelligence workflow overcomes these limitations, bringing the power of FGG to forensic DNA laboratories in the first fit-for-forensic-purpose, fully integrated, end-to-end workflow.

In this technical webinar, you will learn:

  • Specifications of the ForenSeq Kintelligence Kit, including data on sensitivity, inhibitor resistance, and call rates
  • Performance data from real samples such as bones, teeth, and blood
  • Requirements and guidelines for loading kits to GEDmatch PRO
  • Results from an inter-laboratory study evaluating match capabilities out to second cousins
