How Forensic DNA Matching Works
“Who’s been eating my porridge?” cried Baby Bear. “And who’s been sitting in my chair?” Goldilocks was caught in the act, but most mysteries aren’t solved so easily. That’s where DNA matching can help. The main objective of DNA matching analysis is to help identify biological traces from people who have been present in an area being investigated and figure out who they are.
In criminal investigations, DNA matching is used to identify victims and suspects, and also to exclude people from suspicion based on their DNA “fingerprint.” But DNA matching can be used in other types of investigations as well, including private investigators, investigative journalists, writers and other people doing research for personal projects or purposes.
