Global forensic geolocation with deep neural networks


By: N. Grantham n, B. Reich n, E. Laber n, K. Pacifici n, R. Dunn n, N. Fierer*, M. Gebert*, J. Allwood n, S. Faith n

author keywords: Citizen science; Machine learning; Microbiome; Non-homogeneous Poisson process; Spatial point pattern
TL;DR: The DeepSpace algorithm makes remarkably good point predictions; for example, when applied to the microbiomes of over 1300 dust samples collected across continental USA, more than half of geolocated predictions produced by this model fall less than 100 km from their true origin, which is a 60% reduction in error from competing geolocation methods.

2020 review

The Future of Environmental DNA in Forensic Science


By: J. Allwood n, N. Fierer* & R. Dunn n

author keywords: environmental DNA; forensic science; eDNA; metabarcoding; DNA sequencing
MeSH headings : Bacteria / isolation & purification; DNA Barcoding, Taxonomic; DNA, Environmental / analysis; Forensic Sciences / instrumentation; Forensic Sciences / methods; Fungi / isolation & purification; Humans; Microbiota; Plants; Soil Microbiology
TL;DR: A critical look at the current DNA-based technologies using microbiome and environmental sample sources that are focused on the generation of some investigative tools for use in forensic science and discusses the pitfalls and contentions associated with the use of these techniques.

2020 journal article

Use of standardized bioinformatics for the analysis of fungal DNA signatures applied to sample provenance


By: J. Allwood n, N. Fierer*, R. Dunn n, M. Breen n, B. Reich n, E. Laber n, J. Clifton n, N. Grantham n, S. Faith n

author keywords: Forensic microbiology; Bioinformatics; Metabarcoding; Sample provenance
MeSH headings : DNA Barcoding, Taxonomic; DNA, Fungal / chemistry; Demography; Forensic Sciences; Fungi; Humans; Reference Values; Soil
TL;DR: Investigating a small-scale approach as an adaptation of a larger metabarcoding study to develop a model for global sample provenance using fungal DNA signatures collected from dust swabs to facilitate a standardized method for consistent, reproducible sample treatment.

2018 journal article

Demonstration of a basic mitochondrial enrichment method to produce the complete mitochondrial genome sequence of the endangered North Atlantic right whale (Eubalaena glacialis)


By: J. Allwood n, M. Scheible n & S. Faith n

author keywords: Mitochondrial enrichment; Eubalaena glacialis; Mitochondrial genome; Next generation sequencing; Bioinformatics
TL;DR: This method simultaneously allows for efficient sequencing of the mitochondrial genome, while demonstrating quality sequence coverage that is even across the genome, which illustrates a marked improvement in sequence depth compared to that achieved when performing whole genome sequencing using a standard DNA extraction.
