The Investigator magazine interviews Cybergenetics Ria David
Hemel Hempstead, England
In her article "DNA Doyenne," Carol Jenkins of the UK-based The Investigator magazine spoke with Cybergenetics President Dr. Ria David, who had been recognized for her work in using innovative DNA technology to help police convict perpetrators of serious sexual assaults.
"When US scientist Ria David of Cybergenetics took to the stage to receive her P.O.W.E.R Award from the Women in Bio organization recently," wrote The Investigator, "she was accepting the award of behalf of the many female victims of sexual assault that have achieved justice as a result of her work."
Cybergenetics TrueAllele® system automatically interprets DNA to help identify perpetrators of crimes against women. The Investigator's three-page article recounted high-profile cases in the United States and England where TrueAllele analysis provided key biological evidence. TrueAllele is objective, so that "there is no risk of personal interpretation or cognitive bias" by a human analyst, said Dr. David.
The article concluded with a message from Dr. David to women about DNA science and sexual assault. "Information is power, this information is your strength and your way to fight back and ensure justice is done."
