Back to Guidelines for Mass Fatality DNA Identification Operations
This Guideline is intended to be available not only before a disaster occurs to assist in planning, but also at the time of crisis to facilitate implementation under the most difficult of circumstances. Topics covered include program management and oversight, technical considerations in sample collection and testing, data review, screening and statistics, and reporting of results. Special emphasis is placed on family interactions, educational and psychosocial support, and confidentiality of data. Appendices address determining probabilities, identifying mutations, calculating kinship, handling pedigree discrepancies, and using family pedigrees for correct sample collection.
