Yes but explain that to a jury, they wouldn't even comprehend it. Haven't you ever seen C.S.I ?even if you remove crappy lab techs from the equation, DNA tests aren't done in the way a layman might think. they don't compare every nucleotide and check if they match. they could do that, but it would be much more expensive. instead, they just compare the locations of parts of the DNA that aren't even used (called Short Tandem Repeats). it ends up being a probability game instead of a discrete match or no match.
nah. i'm not big on tv in general, nor cop shows in particular. i learned that stuff in a biology class. the tech is even cheap enough these days that we did some DNA testing of our own.Yes but explain that to a jury, they wouldn't even comprehend it. Haven't you ever seen C.S.I ?
