DNA fingerprinting is an emerging forensic technology that has made a lasting impact on society in general, especially the judicial system. Similar to past complex technologies, society has shown skepticism for using DNA for various purposes. Recent advances in DNA collection, storage, and analysis has made this evidence more widely accepted in the courtroom. This project explores this technology by defining the main concepts behind DNA fingerprinting, its uses, DNA databases, and the technology's eventual acceptance in the courtroom.
