Abstract

DNA fingerprinting is a powerful forensic tool for the use of human identification. However, it is not infallible and comes with its own set of complications and limitations. These drawbacks have generated some difficulty with the acceptance of DNA fingerprinting in the courts. The conclusion of this IQP is that after much study and refining, DNA fingerprinting techniques have progressed to a sound a reliable science.
