Event Details

Have you ever wondered what a forensic scientist has to do to analyze DNA evidence?  DNA (the building blocks of life) is present in the cells of all living organisms.  In forensic science DNA is usually extracted from human cells to identify unknown parentage, crime scene suspects, missing victims and to investigate genetic diseases. Since 1985, "DNA fingerprinting" has been used in legal cases around the world to link suspects to the scene of a crime. You'll extract DNA from fruit to see what it looks and feels like. This is similar to what a scientist has to do before they can then use the information contained in this DNA to solve crimes, although they don't use the same protocol.
