Massively parallel sequencing (MPS) technologies offer opportunities to expand forensic mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) typing capabilities affording higher resolution, an increase in discrimination power, and potentially enabling mixture interpretation. Additionally, improvements to MPS technologies and workflows have made implementation into forensic genetic laboratories increasingly more feasible. Following initial successful studies with the Precision ID mtDNA Whole Genome Panel, the process of internal validation and implementation of whole genome mtDNA sequencing began in our Missing Persons and Forensic Casework Units.
