Description: This poster discusses research on DNA profiling. The authors study at least ten court cases to look at the use of DNA over time in hopes of finding a correlation between the use of DNA to convict criminals and the use of other corroborating evidence, by doing this. The authors look at whether courts are convicting criminals solely on DNA evidence or if they need other evidence as well. They also look at court cases from varying years to learn if DNA is used more or less at this time because of the development of new technology that aids in DNA profiling.
