DNA Forensics Unit

DNA Forensics Unit at the Eijkman Institute conducts research on the use of DNA for individual human and species identification.

The unit's activities include:

  • parentage (paternity and/or maternity) test
  • DVI (Disaster Victim Identification)
  • perpetrator identification
  • wildlife species identification

To support the above activities, DNA Forensics Unit together with Genome Diversity research group at the Eijkman Institute has been building population database containing mtDNA and forensic STRs for many Indonesian ethnics. Having custom population database targeting many Indonesian populations ensures the accuracy and validity of the necessary statistical data analysis of the results of identification tests.
