  • 2017 John Wiley & Sons Ltd. All rights reserved. Methods employed for processing, analyzing, and presenting results associated with forensic microbiology samples are rapidly evolving-especially those associated with sequencing techniques. We present methods available at the time this chapter was developed that are widely used for processing such samples for potential use in forensic investigations as evidence with a focus on bacteria. We would like to emphasize to the reader that these methods, while appropriate at the time, serve as a foundation on which to build their knowledge, especially considering how rapidly these methods are evolving.
