Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2006, $453,472)
In the proposed program, GE Global Research will develop a DNA repair method that can be used on damaged DNA samples. This repair method will employ a mixture of DNA repair enzymes to either repair or replace damaged strand segments in subject DNA. The method will be designed to function after DNA isolation, but prior to DNA amplification. This will result in an improvement in the success rate of the analysis of compromised DNA evidence.
