Notes

Abstract: Forensic sciences is the application of science to the legal system. Within forensics, the use of DNA is very important in inspecting profiles and solving crimes. In crime scene investigation, biological samples, such as blood and semen, do not usually contain enough DNA to perform the tests needed to 3.00reate a biological profile. The purpose of this research is to compare the processes used in DNA testing to determine which is best for the criminal justice and forensics fields. For my methodology, I will study at least ten court cases to look at the use of DNA over time. I am hoping to find a correlation between the use of DNA to convict criminals and the use of other corroborating evidence; by doing this, I will learn if courts are convicting criminals based solely on DNA evidence or if they need other evidence as well.
