Adams, David S.
The purpose of this IQP was to investigate the topic of DNA fingerprinting as an example of the effects of technology on society. The goal was accomplished by investigating the proper techniques for collecting and storing DNA evidence from crime scenes to prevent contamination and degradation, and by describing several landmark court cases that helped set standards for determining whether DNA evidence can be accepted in court. The author provides his own conclusions based on his research.
