Kraw Lecture: The past, present, and future of DNA-based forensics
New technologies are being brought to bear in criminal justice. The existence of community databases of DNA information have enabled a new approach, forensic genetic genealogy, for identifying suspects in violent crimes. New technologies for recovering and analyzing DNA from forensic samples brings forensic genetic genealogy to bear for even previously intractable samples, like single rootless hairs. In conversation with Dean of Baskin School of Engineering Alex Wolf, Associate Professor Ed Green will present his approach and thoughts for where this may be headed.
