Important message: Due to the Corona virus / Covid-19 situation, the 12th Haploid Markers Meeting has been postponed to June 9-12, 2021, taking place in Budapest, Hungary.
 
The Conference motto is “Big data – stretching the borders of forensic genetics”. Novel sequencing techniques have significantly increased the body of haploid data and will continue to shape our understanding of extant lineage variation. This also impacts forensic applications. Therefore, attendees who specialize in this aspect are encouraged to submit relevant abstracts. The organizers invite papers on a variety of topics including
 
  • forensic biostatistics of haploid markers
  • haploid markers in the courtroom
  • evidential value of high-resolution mtDNA and Y haplotypes - new sequencing technologies and bioinformatics
  • update on forensic databases
  • population structure and inference on its history
  • forensic genealogical testing
  • human evolutionary genomics
  • ethical considerations in the context of phenotyping and biogeographic ancestry testing
