Single-locus fingerprinting

Description:
A laboratory that specializes in DNA fingerprint testing extracted DNA from a semen sample, E(vs), retrieved from Perry's body, and blood samples from Reesh, S1, and Jones, S2. The lab used a cocktail of single-locus probes to produce the DNA fingerprint seen at right.
