Adams, David S.
New technological innovations are not always accepted in the courtroom at first glance. Although DNA fingerprinting is the worlds most powerful identifying technology, its acceptance in courts has taken years. This IQPs intention is to provide information about how DNA fingerprinting is performed, to discuss its reliability, document its legal precedents, describe a few sensational cases, and discuss the ethics of DNA databases, as an example of the impact of technology on society.
