DNA 101 and Beyond: Paving the Pathway for New Technology

  • Ended
  • Room F

Service Description

Over the last decade, there has been an increase in the number of new technologies available to solve crime in the forensic DNA community, including genealogy, next-generation sequencing (NGS), probabilistic genotyping, phenotyping, and more! To understand the potential for these amazing tools, it is important to first understand the basics including short tandem repeats (STRs), Y-STRs, and Mitochondrial DNA testing. We will also introduce you to NGS which is the path forward for many DNA technologies including forensic genetic genealogy. The importance of each technology will be discussed as well as show they have the potential to impact an investigation. This presentation also provides a brief overview of crime scene evidence collection and preservation based on the new standards of DNA capabilities. Finally, we will discuss how standards have changed in the community and how the impossible is now possible using new technology! Danielle Gluth - DNA Labs International
