The purpose of this IQP was to use the topic of DNA fingerprinting as an example of a new technology with a strong impact on society. The technical part of the project investigated what DNA is, how DNA fingerprints are performed, and recent standardized protocols for DNA evidence collection, while the societal part of the project investigated landmark court cases that set legal precedence for admitting technical evidence (including DNA) in U.S. courts, and the ethics of DNA databases.
