Abstract

DNA identification of many mass fatality victims of the 11 September 2001 attack on the World Trade Centers (WTC) in New York City required development of new analytical methods. Development of novel STR multiplex sets with improved performance using challenged DNA samples is described in an accompanying paper. Here we describe modifications and improvements to procedures used to extract DNA from bone fragments found at the site.
