Revolutionising DNA analysis in major crime investigations
M.W. Perlin, "Revolutionising DNA analysis in major crime investigations", The Investigator DNA Workshop, Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, UK, 1-May-2014.
PowerPoint presentations with live audio recordings of Dr. Perlin's talks.
The Investigator is hosting a one day free workshop alongside Cybergenetics - leading US-based experts that have analysed DNA evidence in some of the world's most high profile investigations including the 9/11 attacks. Cybergenetics is now also working with some UK police forces on some innovative cases.
They are currently leading the way in providing cutting edge technology and expert opinion to ensure investigators make maximum use of DNA evidence in major crime investigations.
Led by scientist and expert witness Dr. Mark Perlin, the workshop will present new ideas and methods of DNA analysis that could make a real difference to the work of UK investigators.
Dr. Perlin will reveal how currently the majority of DNA evidence goes unused which means investigators are missing out of the wealth of potential that exists in this area that could mean the difference between a solved and unsolved case.
He will use case studies gained from some of the leading international investigations to explain how the TrueAllele® technology can interpret even the most complex DNA evidence, provide continuous search and match capability, automate the review of reference samples and support the creation of DNA databases for investigative purposes.
The technology is so sophisticated it can be used on low template or degraded DNA. This workshop is aimed at all investigators who want to make the most effective use of DNA evidence in an investigation as well as representatives from other law enforcement agencies and industry who want to look at new and innovative ways of DNA analysis.
