Each section includes a variety of articles, guides, infographics, news, products and more—all of which can help a forensic professional on his/her journey to justice.
Human identification is difficult enough without mass disasters, degraded and limited DNA and complex mixtures, just to name a few challenging sample types. Luckily, next-generation sequencing, also known as massively parallel sequencing, has evolved to the point of consistently providing high-resolution, high-accuracy results.
Given its popularity and the impact it has made within the forensic community since 2018, it’s easy to forget forensic genetic genealogy is still in its infancy. The technique has an almost unlimited amount of promise though, especially in some of the most taxing casework like sexual assault investigations and cold case homicides.
