Fall 2012 Chemistry/Physics Seminar

Melissa Boler, a graduate student in the forensic science program, will present a literature seminar, "Messenger RNA Profiling for the Distinction of Several Biological Fluids in Forensic Science," at 12:30 p.m. Thursday, November 15, in Science Building 272. This seminar is open to the public and provides refreshments. The seminar abstract is as follows:

Abstract
When evidences like stains from crime scenes are examined, DNA analysis is typically performed to link an individual to the scene; however, identification of where the cells derived from can be extremely beneficial to investigators, allowing for crime scene reconstruction and sexual assault verification. Conventional methods of body fluid identification have been known to be labor intensive, nonspecific, and presumptive and require large sample amounts. Researchers have been determined to develop new and more convenient techniques to advance in the forensic science community, mRNA (messenger RNA) being one of them. mRNA exhibits a unique expression pattern in specific body
