Wildlife crime investigation is one of the important facets of forensics science. DNA typing is one of the effective protocols for dealing such issues. The availability of conserved and universal primers has enormous scope in DNA wildlife forensics. These universal primers are designed based on the various conserved regions located on the genes of mitochondrial genome. This study explains the use of DNA typing and genetic profiling in dealing the wildlife crime cases.
