In a previous EUROFORGEN/EDNAP collaborative exercise, we tested two assays for targeted mRNA massively parallel sequencing for the identification of body fluids/tissues, optimized for the Illumina MiSeq/FGx and the Ion Torrent PGM/S5 platforms, respectively. The task of the second EUROFORGEN/EDNAP collaborative exercise was to analyze dried body fluid stains with two different multiplexes, the former Illumina 33plex mRNA panel for body fluid/tissue identification and a 35plex cSNP panel for assignment of body fluids/tissues to donors that was introduced in a proof-of-concept study recently.
