Abstract

Forensic DNA fingerprinting evidence has been a source of debate ever since it was first used in an English courtroom in 1987. This Interactive Qualifying Project examines many of the landmark court cases that have pushed for the acceptance and refinement of this type of evidence. This project also explores specific DNA fingerprinting techniques, forensics, and population genetics that all serve as a basis for the evidence.
