Over the past decades, we have seen great developments and continued evolution for a powerful criminal justice tool. Deoxyribonucleic Acid, or DNA. DNA has become a tool that is used to identify criminals with incredible accuracy when biological evidence is available. DNA can also be used to eliminate suspects and absolve people mistakenly accused of or convicted of crimes. DNA technology is increasingly vital and reliable to ensuring accuracy and fairness in the criminal justice system.
In cases where a suspect has not yet been identified, biological evidence from the crime scene can be analyzed and compared to offender profiles in DNA databases to help identify the offender. Crime scene evidence can also be linked to other crime scenes using DNA databases. The founders of Cybergenetics use computers to automate the interpretation of DNA data for medical diagnosis, gene discovery, solving crimes, freeing the innocent and prosecuting the guilty.
