Record-breaking DNA comparisons drive fast forensics
MetadataShow full item record
DNA forensics is a powerful tool, yet it presents a computational scaling problem when it is improved and expanded for complex samples (those containing DNA from more than one individual) and kinship analysis. Laboratory staff developed an integrated web-based platform that provides expanded comparison capabilities without compromising speed or functionality. These new algorithms encode genetic markers as bits to allow for fast DNA comparisons in forensics.
