Abstract

The purpose of this IQP was to trace the development and progress of DNA fingerprinting technology as it continues to be a integral part of judicial systems and societies world-wide. Much of the initial DNA fingerprinting methods and techniques have undergone substantial improvements to satiate the bombardment of skeptics, giving the technology more credibility in courts. However, there is still the unresolved issue of privacy laws that continue to complicate the issue of who should submit samples to DNA databases.
