Sex Determination in Highly Fragmented Human DNA by High-Resolution Melting (HRM) Analysis

Sex identification in ancient human remains is a common problem especially if the skeletons are sub-adult, incomplete or damaged. In this paper we propose a new method to identify sex, based on real-time PCR amplification of small fragments (61 and 64 bp) of the third exon within the amelogenin gene...
