Tip of the Month – August 2012

After collection, buccal swab samples need be stored and shipped in a manner that allows them to adequately dry. If the swabs retain moisture, bacteria can grow and degrade the DNA, rendering the swab unsuitable for DNA analysis. In order to ensure that buccal swabs are able to dry, it is important that you follow two simple rules. First, do NOT place the buccal swabs back into the swab wrappers. The inside of the wrappers are coated with a thin waxy-like film that does not allow the swabs access to air, and thus they cannot dry. Second, place the buccal swabs into the paper sample envelope provided with the DNA Collection Kit, not a plastic bag. The swabs will be able to dry inside of a paper envelope, but will not be able to dry inside of a plastic bag.

New Jersey To Require Violent Crime Convict DNA Samples

Bill A-2594, that passed the New Jersey Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee and now heads to the full Assembly, will increase law enforcement’s crime-fighting powers buy requiring DNA samples from individuals arrested on suspicion of certain violent crimes. An identical version of the bill has already been approved by the Senate today.

Bill A-2594 amends New Jersey’s “DNA Database and Databank Act of 1994” so that it requires DNA samples from anyone arrested on suspicion of crimes. These include: murder; manslaughter; second degree aggravated assault; attempts to or causes serious bodily injury to another, or causes bodily injury while fleeing or attempting to flee a law enforcement officer; kidnapping; luring or enticing a child; engaging in sexual conduct which would impair or debauch the morals of a child; or aggravated sexual assault; sexual assault; aggravated criminal sexual contact; criminal sexual contact, or an attempt to commit any of these offenses.

The New Jersey bill stipulates that if the charges against a person from whom a DNA sample was collected are dismissed, or if a person is acquitted at trial, the sample and the profile would be destroyed, and all related records expunged, upon request by that individual.

The bill also gives law enforcement the teeth to be able to ensure compliance by making it a crime for any person who knowingly refuses to submit to the collection of a blood or biological sample.  The penalty would be a term of imprisonment of up to 18 months, or a fine of up to $10,000, or both.

This bill will start working with the FBI’s current index. The FBI uses a system called CODIS (Combined DNA Index System) which provides for the storage and exchange of law enforcement DNA records on a national basis.  CODIS consists of two separate indexes. The first is a “forensic” index containing DNA profiles from crime scene evidence.  The second is an  “offender” index, with DNA profiles of convicted offenders. It also allows for an electronic comparison of the DNA profiles from those two indexes. Often “hits” (matches) between DNA found at crime scenes and DNA profiles of convicted offenders are made.  Analysts can also link multiple or unsolved crimes to a single perpetrator by comparing profiles in both indexes.

Our DNA Testing Company does not provide any government agency with DNA profiles. However, should you need a DNA test, such as a paternity test, with an incarcerated person, we can help. Contact us today for more information. 888-362-4339

Did Vikings Take Native Americans To Europe?

Sciences find DNA evidence that supports medieval tests suggestions that Vikings landed in North America over 1,000 years ago.

DNA analysis of several families in Iceland show that they possess maternal DNA typically found in Native Americas or East Asians. These findings boos a widely accepted theory based previously only on Icelandic medieval tests that Vikings in fact landed and might have had a settlement in the Newfoundland Canada area prior to the Christopher Columbus expedition.

The analysis was don’t by Spain’s CSIC scientific research institute and included 80 different people from four families. It was discovered that all the families caring this distinctively Native American/East Asian DNA were from ancestors who lived between 1710 and 1740 from the same region of southern Iceland and based on the type of DNA had to be introduced by a woman.
