Rolling circle amplification: A (random) primer on the enrichment of an infinite linear DNA template
Published Online: Aug 28 2019
DOI: 10.1002/wfs2.1359
Rolling circle amplification exploits a circular or, in effect, infinite linear template to subsequently amplify specific genomic targets. It employs random primers and a highly processive DNA polymerase to generate long tandem copies of a circular DNA template.

Tattoos and tattoo inks: Forensic considerations
Published Online: Aug 28 2019
DOI: 10.1002/wfs2.1360
Tattoos play a critical role in forensic investigations, and are most useful as a means of identification. The systematic characterization of tattoos should be based on gross and detailed physical features, such as design, color and location on the body, as well as size and relative locations to other tattoos. Caution should be taken when interpreting the design or assigning a “meaning” to the wearer's tattoo(s).
