Abstract

Software (known as eDNA 2.0) has been developed for information management for identity testing labs. The software operates in a browser-based, multiuser environment compatible with intranet or internet accessibility. eDNA 2.0 manages accessioning through reporting in a user-friendly, intuitive manner. Parentage testing and forensic applications are incorporated into eDNA, and a kinship module is under development. Highlights of eDNA 2.0 include (1) accessioning templates that record information in a flexible, annotated way that can be easily tracked, (2) phenotype entry for any number of user-defined STR test batteries, (3) questioned relationships defined using dropdown menus, (4) entry of screening results for body fluids, (5) user-defined methods for dealing with mixed DNA profiles, and (6) capability to examine exclusions for possible sample errors.
