Advancing Forensic DNA Analysis in Support of DoD Missions
May 21, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT
Join HDIAC on Thursday, May 21, from 1200 to 1300 EDT for a live webinar presentation titled “Advancing Forensic DNA Analysis in Support of DoD Missions”. Please register in advance for the webinar at: https://www.anymeeting.com/PIID=EE57DF8384493D
Forensic DNA analysis has advanced significantly within the last 5 years and developments are beginning to be incorporated that will further push the boundaries of forensic science. By harnessing single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) across the entire genome, forensic investigations are now being solved with the aid of innovative technologies developed by Parabon under DoD research contracts, many of which are now in use by the DoD.
In this presentation, Dr. Ellen Greytak, Director of Bioinformatics, will use real life case studies to provide an overview of new forensic technologies such as DNA phenotyping, distant kinship analysis, next-generation sequencing (NGS), and forensic genetic genealogy, discussing the technologies, their use, and their application to the DoD.
