Overview

The authors have provided a unique and authoritative work with their amalgamation of expertise in population genetics, the laws of evidence and molecular biology.
DNA Profiling provides a potent new tool in criminal investigatins whereby genetic material in tissue residues is analyzed to provide direct identification of an individual. This book serves as a comprehensive and definitive reference source for all aspects of DNA profiling and it clearly describes the underlying principles, as well as the analytical procedures, in language that can be understood by the non-scientist. It considers the scientific aspects and legal implications of obtaining tissue samples and the interpretive problems that can be encountered with the results, with the emphasis on the proper use of evidence based on DNA profiling.
