Advancing Forensic DNA Analysis in Support of DoD Missions

Presented: May 21, 2020 12:00 pm
Presented by: Dr. Ellen Greytak, Ph.D.

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 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.
