"Developing New Technologies
for Forensic DNA Typing: Multiplex PCR and MALDI-TOF-MS,
assays from mtDNA and the Y chromosome"
Dr. John Butler, Ph.D.
Dr. Butler is a
pioneer in Forensic DNA typing. He completed his Ph.D. in Analytical
Chemistry at the University of Virginia in 1995 working with
the FBI Research Laboratory first demonstrating STR typing
by capillary electrophoresis and developing a method for quantitating
mitochondrial DNA. After completing postdoctoral training at
NIST, he became a project leader at GeneTrace Systems and is
currently a NIST as research chemist developing time-of-flight
mass spectrometry for forensic DNA typing.
