Abstract

DNA fingerprinting is a powerful new forensic technology, that many argue is the greatest tool in the history of forensic science. But as is often the case for new technologies, its acceptance by society was not straightforward. This project investigates this technology describing how it is done, its uses, and its indirect path of acceptance in the courtroom.
