A bunion is a deformity that is mainly made up of a lateral deviation of the great toe which enlarges due to a tissue or a bone. It is a serious foot problem. These are formed within the foot and not on the surface of the foot. An arthritic condition and  a result of bone degeneration it is found as  a lump on the outside portion of the big toe. Bunions are seen near the joint of the toe and sometimes  [...]

DNA Fingerprinting Strategy for Express Confirmation of Osama Bin Laden’s Death

Submitted by on May 3, 2011 – 12:05 amNo Comment



Intriguing info has been released by the Federal Government regarding procedures deployed for identification of the main accused in the 9/ 11 attacks, Osama Bin Laden.

Firstly, on-scene identification was accomplished by duo females present at the killing site. Secondly, on getting back to Jalalabad, the Navy Seal squad did a measurement of his mortal remains. Osama towered over 6 ft. 4 inches in height. Thirdly, they carried out a computerized facial recognition evaluation that arrived at a conclusion of ninety to ninety-five percent matching.

Alongside visually recognizing Osama, representatives even deployed facial recognition plus DNA fingerprinting proof for conforming that it was actually him.

In just within some hours time post-raiding his hideout that the investigative team were able to successfully do a DNA matching, however, it is a process which at times could be taking many days or even weeks on end.

The DNA fingerprinting of Osama was swift & this has astonished a lot of individuals since in crime laboratories there is mostly some hold-up due to pile-up of cases.

Here’s one technique of how processing in-field is quickly done for DNA matching.

  • DNA is drawn from the blood & then passed inside a device for coping it.
  • It’s loading then done inside a DNA analyzing device that would be printing the info in graph form.
  • Its reading is then done by geneticists.

One might wonder how much time would be taken for accomplishing this? Well, 2-3 hours would suffice and it is doable with special efforts one could obtain under that time frame.

However, for doing a DNA fingerprinting of Osama, the squad would need to have somebody against which they could do a comparison of his DNA.

For this, there was pre-planning done to seize one of his kin members DNA sample. The FBI supposedly obtained a DNA sample from his sister who didn’t manage to survive cancer six years ago while undergoing treatment for the same in Boston.

This truly highlights the preparedness of the U.S. officials in accomplishing the must-needed target of annihilating the man who’s responsible for killing scores of innocent lives for his selfish goals.

Reports have even been tricking out of a 2nd DNA fingerprinting test conducted for substantiating Osama’s death. This is typically the practice followed and whenever affirmative results are received from laboratory testing, a repeat testing is done. However, in many forensics scenarios, there is often not sufficient DNA left for repeating the test.

The DNA analysis from Osama’s blood relatives is believed to corroborate his demise with a 99.9 % precision and is similar to paternity test for determining if a child & father are actually blood-related. As human beings, there is just this 0.1% inconsistency distinguishing us & this is what DNA testing is precisely looking at.

According to United States Intelligence representatives, DNA collection done from Osama’s dead body has been contrasted to DNA from several of his relatives. When carried out by expert technician team, the DNA matching strategy is nearly one hundred per cent precise.

A common practice in the United States Justice system, DNA fingerprinting, helps in matching DNA samples taken from the crime location with those of the suspects. The robust molecule is capable of persisting for protracted periods of time though it is most expedient to contrast when it is coming from freshly collected tissue samples.

Although DNA testing has become rather refined yet one could also be evaluating DNA from animal or human species that have gone extinct & deceased since several years.

In case of Osama, the DNA match approach involves cutting the DNA is smallish fragments which an electric current would force via a gelatin-similar matter, where it segregates into parallel stripe patterns, as per size. The bands would be forming a ladder-similar pattern which is unique to that person similar to fingerprints.

Shuffling together of Mom’s & Dad’s DNA is done so that one gets portions of them which is what is making you a person. When people share a mom & dad, the likelihood that they are having analogous DNA is much higher as compared to them having different parents.

The al Qaeda head was killed after a bullet was fired straight to his head by the United Stated forces who infiltrated the compound he was hiding in, approx. forty miles north of Islamabad, Pakistan.
