1. A method of making and using a kit for authenticating or tracking a biological sample of a human or other species, comprising the steps of:
synthesizing one or more reference markers comprising one or more nucleic acid oligomers selected from the group consisting of SEQ ID NOs: 1-368; and
providing said one or more reference markers for use as an authenticating or tracking molecule in said biological sample;
combining said biological sample with said one or more reference markers; and then
determining if a test sample includes said one more reference markers, wherein if said test sample includes said one or more reference markers then said test sample is authenticated to be said biological sample, and if said test sample does not include said one or more reference markers then said test sample is determined to not be said biological sample.
