Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
This IQP analyzed DNA fingerprinting technology, including the various methods used to perform tests, and how this amazing new technology has overcome considerable opposition to make advances in the field of forensic science. The earlier chapters focus on the technical portion of the topic, describing what DNA is, how DNA fingerprints are made using different procedures, and which methods are used for collecting, storing, and processing DNA evidence. The function of DNA databases and their ethics was also investigated. The chapters on landmark court cases examined how legal precedence was established for admitting technical evidence into US courts. Finally the authors make their own conclusions about the technology based on their research.
