|Androgen Receptor Database|
Constitutional mutations in the androgen receptor gene (AR) impair androgen - dependent male sexual differentiation to various degrees. Somatic mutations in the AR have been found in metastatic prostate cancer. Severe constitutional androgen insensitivity (AI) yields an external female phenotype. Partial constitutional AI yields a range of external genital phenotypes
that vary from near - normal female to normal or near - normal male, with or without gynecomastia and other relatively "mild" signs of undervirilization. Some have suggested that clinical severity of AI be divided into three degrees: complete, partial, (when there is appreciable external genital ambiguity) and mild (for the least severe forms). Others have graded severity into seven degrees . The current version of the AR mutation database retains the complete / partial bifurcation of the original database, but provides additional information on the external genitalia and on sex - of - rearing. When external genital ambiguity is appreciable, the sex - of -rearing implies that the external genitalia were predominately male or female. Because different clinical degrees of AI are sometimes seen within families or between those with the same mutation, the new version of the database has an entry for family history.

|The Y-Chromosome Haplotype Reference Database" info|
The ability to identify male-specific DNA renders polymorphic Y-chromosomal sequences an invaluable addition to the standard panel of autosomal loci used in forensic genetics (Roewer 2009). Y-STR haplotyping is particularly important for sensitive typing of male DNA in mixed stains as well as for rapid assortment of biological crime scene evidence. Moreover, Y chromosomal profiling can trace back paternal lineages into the past and has thus been proven a useful tool in genealogical and kinship testing. The individuality of the male-specific part of the Y chromosome can be optimally explored by the Y-STR haplotype analysis using a set of highly variable short tandem repeat markers approved by the forensic and scientific community.
