Synopsis: Examines the procedures and uses of DNA fingerprinting as a method of identification in forensic science

From School Library Journal: Grade 6 Up-- A wordy, boring distillation of magazine and newspaper articles. Lampton's conclusion is that DNA fingerprinting may become a major forensic technique after it has been more thoroughly and accurately tested. Much of the text is too complex for young readers but too flawed to be used as a serious reference. It is awkwardly written, repetitious, and padded with blurry, meaningless, black-and-white photos. The technical explanations are often marred by cutesy unscientific images such as, ``chromosomes are a library,'' a virus ``hijacking the protein . . .,'' a ``DNA horse race.'' Although it predates DNA techniques, Stuart Kind's Science against Crime (Doubleday, 1972; o.p.) is more likely to foster forensic science careers because it is well written and has excellent, informative photos and diagrams.
