Beweiskraft von DNA-Spuren: Was macht das Y-Chromosom so besonders?

Abstract

Many crime cases require clarification whether or not a trace was left
by a suspect. This is achieved by comparing their DNA profiles, a
match indicating identity of suspect and donor. In sexual crimes, the
trace is often a mixture of male and female material. This renders the
analysis of the Y chromosome useful, but the interpretation of the
genetic results is complicated by the specific mode of inheritance. We
review some of the arising challenges as well as recently suggested
solutions.
