Adams, David S.
The aim of this IQP was to research different DNA fingerprinting technologies and study their effect on todays' society. Early chapters focused on the two main methods for obtaining DNA fingerprints, and the way DNA samples are collected and stored. Later chapters focused on an analysis of landmark DNA court cases as examples for allowing complex technology into U.S. courts, and discussed the purpose of various kinds of DNA databases and their privacy rights. Lastly, the authors determined their own conclusions about this new technology including whose DNA should be entered into databases.
