From the Back Cover:

"We are sure that DNA: Forensic and Legal Applications will playits part in promoting this most powerful tool in the forensicscientist’s armamentarium."
–James Watson, PhD
–Jan Witkowski. PhD

Because it consists of a number of complex steps and proceduressubject to both scientific and legal standards, the collection,analysis, presentation, and interpretation of DNA evidence remainsa complex process. Any procedural or documentary misstep canpotentially render key evidence or testimony useless. To avoid suchcostly errors, scientists, law enforcement personnel, attorneys,and judges all must possess a detailed knowledge of how forensicDNA works, from the crime scene to the laboratory to the courtroomand beyond.

DNA: Forensic and Legal Applications provides the mostcomprehensive and up-to-date guide to this important andincreasingly prevalent legal tool. Designed to reach readers inboth legal and scientific fields, this text gives a global view ofthe practical issues involved in the forensic use of DNA. In clear,nontechnical language, the text covers:

  • A scientific overview of DNA and common DNA tests
  • Techniques used by criminalists on the path from crime scene tofinal laboratory analysis
  • Procedures used to analyze biological evidence
  • Human genetics, population genetics, and statistics in thecontext of DNA testing and genetic profiling
  • Understanding and interpreting DNA evidence with respect topast and present law
  • Concepts and procedures used in challenging or defending DNAevidence
  • Postconviction appeals based on analysis of existing DNAevidence, including a discussion of The Innocence Project
  • The future of DNA technology with respect to legal evidencegathering and analysis

In a unique combination of legal practice and scientificanalysis, DNA: Forensic and Legal Applications provides forensicscientists, potential expert witnesses, and professionals in thecriminal justice system with the definitive resource on the methodsof DNA analysis as well as the handling, potential, and limitationsof DNA evidence.
