This page shows some of the supporting data and results directly received from outsource laboratories used in this study. This will include raw data from the sequencers as well as some summary information prepared and sent by the outsource laboratories. For clarification purposes, Sample 25 is an extraction performed robotically by the North Louisiana Criminalistics Laboratory from 3 hairs plucked from the Northern California tissue sample labeled 26 in the study. Sample 26 was a 3 mm cube of tissue derived from the center of the same tissue as sample 25 and extracted by DNA Diagnostics. Both samples were run in tandem with identical results. You will note this in the summary chart. This data is intended to put to rest any questions about our study and the data quality. This is just a sample of what we saw consistently in all of the samples tested in the study. All testing was performed with human controls, up to 5 of them at times. The human controls all amplified and sequenced as expected on all platforms.
