Fredericks, Jamie, Brown, Kaia, Williams, Anna and Bennett, Phil (2013) DNA analysis of skeletal tissue recovered from the English Channel. Journal of Forensic and Legal Medicine, 20 (6). pp. 757-759. ISSN 1752928X

This case study reports on DNA analysis from different skeletal elements of an individual recovered 2 years after going missing in the English Channel. Selected bones were also re-submerged for an additional 2 years and re-analysed. By comparing results from both time points, this study concludes that high-load-bearing bones, particularly the bones of the feet, appear to be a preferable source of DNA for identification of skeletal tissue recovered from similar conditions.
