Pittsburgh Post Gazette publishes feature article on Cybergenetics trailblazing TrueAllele computer technology for solving crimes through better DNA identification

Pittsburgh, PA

Explaining how forensic DNA science can be improved using mathematics and computers can be challenging. Yet the public policy issues are paramount, since better ways to combat crime can make a safer society for everyone. In his June, 2011 Pittsburgh Post-Gazette article, journalist David Templeton describes Cybergenetics TrueAllele® computer technology for advanced DNA evidence interpretation in an understandable way. Mr. Templeton interviewed Cybergenetics Chief Scientific Officer Dr. Mark Perlin, Allegheny County Medical Examiner Dr. Karl Williams, Senior Deputy Attorney General Anthony Krastek, New York State Police Biological Science Director Dr. Barry Duceman, and Boston University Biomedical Forensic Sciences Director Dr. Robin Cotton. Starting his story with the Lyons homicide case, Mr. Templeton talks about TrueAllele and its leading role in the future of forensic DNA science.
