DNA fingerprinting has had tremendous effects on society. This IQP explains the main methods for performing DNA fingerprints, and proper procedures to be taken while collecting and storing DNA samples. It also examines landmark DNA court cases, describing the journey DNA fingerprinting has made through our court system to set precedences for providing viable evidence. Sensational court cases were also analyzed to show the effectiveness of using DNA technology. The ethics behind DNA databases is also examined, and author conclusions are drawn.
