This book reflects practical approaches to answering a variety of biological and medical questions using DNA fingerprinting and genetic profiling in a broad sense that also includes statistical evaluation of the data. It has been written for biology, biochemistry and medical students, graduates, postdoctor­ al fellows, academic teachers and for all researchers in the theoretical and ap­ plied sciences wherever genetic identification and relationship analyses are re­ quired. Although the book represents a holistic treatment of the "state-of-the­ art" technology concerning these topics, methological details are always given in the form of elaborated protocols so that the reader can benefit in terms of everyday work in the laboratoryas well.
