In 2 additional approaches, we pooled the iWGA products of 5 single cells and the products of 3 single cells (Table 2; see Table 3 in the online Data Supplement) after DNA fingerprint
analysis revealed the cells to be of HT-29 origin.
For this lesson, construct the DNA fingerprint
gel (or poster board) so that Fred Weasley is the suspect that students will decide is guilty of the crime.
Early in the outbreak, BCHD recognized the initial cluster of four cases with matching DNA fingerprint
Lynch 1990, 1991) between DNA fingerprints
was calculated as the number of bands shared between each pair of individuals (|n.
Studies are increasingly using levels of clustering of isolates from tuberculosis cases (proportion sharing identical DNA fingerprint
patterns) to estimate the extent of disease attributable to recent transmission.
tuberculosis Strains on the Basis of DNA Fingerprint
Patterns by Using the IS6110 Method in Specific Geographic Areas.
A study conducted in Arkansas suggests that DNA fingerprint
clustering in stable rural populations may result from remote rather than recent transmission (6).
We conducted this study to determine the epidemiologic evidence of transmission among patients whose isolates have similar DNA fingerprint
To estimate recent TB transmission in the homeless population, we calculated the proportion of cases clustered within a 2-year period of a preceding case with the identical DNA fingerprint
In addition, the panel recommends the formation of a National Committee on Forensic DNA Typing to keep up with innovations in DNA fingerprinting methods, and the creation of a nationwide DNA fingerprint
database if current pilot studies prove its usefulness in tracking criminals.
Large databases of DNA fingerprint
information, such as those from the U.
Further testing of the DNA fingerprint
confirmed that 3 environmental samples matched that of patients with the current outbreak strain.
