Understanding SNPs

How to use SNPs to enhance traditional forensic analyses

Back to Webinars

Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) offer unique advantages for human identification applications supplementing STR markers to enhance traditional analyses or enabling new and expanded application capabilities. In this first Verogen webinar to explore the specific advantages of SNPs, we focus on how they can be applied to current analyses to improve outcomes, generating better answers to today’s questions. Join our guest speakers as they share their experiences of using SNPs to augment STR analysis and take questions in a Q&A session.
