Abstract

The purpose of this project was to investigate the technology of DNA fingerprinting describing how they are performed, how they are used, and the impact of this technology on society with legal and ethical issues. We conclude this powerful technology has a variety of applications, but it requires strong legislative oversights to help preserve privacy rights.
