On May 20th to the 21st, Haploid Markers 20th Anniversary Conference in Berlin, Germany.

Haploid markers and the nine previous conferences united the forensic, genealogical and anthropological communities once again in Berlin. The experts from different fields working with haploid markers gathered together to share experience, knowledge and new discoveries. The conference had a strong focus on new tools and technologies used in the field of haploid marker research.

The conference was held in the beautiful campus of Charité. 


Charité is one of the largest university hospitals in Europe. Charité proudly lays claim to more than half of all German Nobel Prize winners in Physiology or Medicine, including Emil von Behring, Robert Koch, and Paul Ehrlich. Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin represents a single medical faculty, which serves both Humboldt Universtität zu Berlin and Freie Universität Berlin.  Charité extends over four campuses, and has close to 100 different Departments and Institutes, which make up a total of 17 different Charité Centers.  Having marked its 300-year anniversary in 2010, Charité is now one of the largest employers in Berlin.

With 220 participants from 43 countries it was again a very international meeting. 78 papers were presented which cover a broad spectrum of topics from palindromes to telomeres, from population to archaological studies, from haplotypes to haplogroups, from deep-rooting pedigrees to recent population differentiation, from court cases to cold cases, from familial search to surname prediction, from Bayes to King Albert I, from A00 to DF27 (https://yhrd.org/HM2016_ProgrammeAndAbstracts.pdf). We thank the organisers of the Institute of Legal Medicine and Forensic Sciences in Berlin (Lutz Roewer, Marion Nagy, Sascha Willuweit and their team), the Institute of Legal Medicine in Innbruck (Austria), the sponsors (Illumina, Promega, Qiagen, ThermoFisher), the presenters and all who came to Berlin to celebrate the anniversary of this workshop series with us.


Health Gene Technologies was sharing experience of population and validation work with SureID® 27Y Human STR Identification Kit (http://www.healthgenetech.com/27Y) and SureID® Compass Human DNA Identification Kit (http://www.healthgenetech.com/Compass). We have started important work with Sichuan University, The Beijing Institute of Genomics and University of Technology Sydney.
