What's New and What's Next in Forensic DNA Analysis

Date: Fri, March 23
Time: 9:45 AM - 11:00 AM

DNA testing has an unparalleled power among forensics to both exonerate and convict. This panel of experts and litigators will discuss DNA tests currently being used to test incredibly small amounts of biological material, as well as the new Probabilistic Genotyping software being used to "un-mix" complex DNA mixtures from multiple sources, and the problems that can come with such advances as you seek to show a client's innocence. The panel will also discuss DNA tests under development right now, like Massive Parallel Sequencing, and what the future of forensic DNA analysis will mean as attorneys, exonerees, and experts continue the search for new methods and evidence that will help free the wrongfully convicted.
