This IQP intended to show DNA fingerprinting as an emerging technology that has had a profound impact on the judicial system and on society since its first court appearance. DNA fingerprints have come a long way from conventional fingerprints. Recent advances in DNA forensics and DNA collection methods have alleviated skepticism in courts making DNA evidence more widely accepted. Despite precedence set by landmark court cases, privacy issues regarding DNA databases continue to raise ethical concerns in society.
