The unit covers Variable Numbers of Tandem Repeats (VNTR)based paternity analysis as well as the newer methods relying on PCR to analyze sequencespecific polymorphisms and microsatellite regions. The discussion of data analysis and probability calculations has been expanded to address a number of special circumstances, such as the lack of sample from an alleged father, motherless cases, and more.
