Cybergenetics TrueAllele analyzes DNA evidence from World Trade Center terrorist attack

New York, NY

The World Trade Center (WTC) terrorist attack left in its wake over 27 hundred missing people and over 18 thousand severely damaged biological specimens. Cybergenetics used TrueAllele® Casework to reanalyze all the WTC DNA data from victim remains, personal effects and family members. TrueAllele Database then applied DNA matching to the reanalyzed data, thereby identifying victim remains with missing people.
