Abstract

Abstract Many studies have focused on the identification of human fluids and tissues that are often left behind in forensic settings but only a few have, so far, analysed potential markers for human skin determination. The current work presents initial data on the comparison of two recently reported methods for skin tissue determination for forensic applications using DNA- and mRNA-based assays, aiming towards the implementation of an identification assay for human skin tissue.
