Saranya Krishnan

Hi, I am Saranya. I hold MS Forensic Science (Biology track) from International Forensic Research Institute (IFRI),Florida International University, Miami and MSc Biotechnology from Bharatiar University, India. During my graduate degree in US, myresearch work was in the Genomic Analyses of pathogenic and Non pathogenic Fungi isolated from ambrosia beetles in avocado trees using Fragment analysis and Multi locus sequence typing. I am a person passionate in Forensic Biology, especially the role of DNA in Forensics.

Single-Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs)

Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) for Human Identification An Emerging Forensic Tool Genetic Typing is a powerful forensic tool used for investigating criminal and paternity cases. Current methods for DNA profiling reduces sample consumption, multiple manipulation procedures, reduce the processing time, and also amplifies 16 different loci through multiplexing. DNA Typing increases the power of discrimination …
