Workshop on NGS and Bioinformatics through Simulation

The Forensic Technology Center of Excellence (FTCoE) has developed an immersive and interactive virtual simulation tool that guides DNA practitioners through three commercially available Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) forensic laboratory processes. This tool will be showcased at the 27th International Symposium on Human Identification in Minneapolis, Minnesota on September 26, 2016.

Participants will also learn how to analyze STR, SNP, and mtDNA data generated through NGS technologies, and hear first-hand use cases that will aid in future plans for implementation.

Registration is now open for the Symposium and the workshop. Click here to learn more.

Court Case Update

FINGERPRINT EVIDENCE went through a nearly three-year ordeal in the New Hampshire court system, but eventually emerged unscathed. On April 4, 2008, the New Hampshire Supreme Court unanimously reversed the decision of a lower court to exclude expert testimony regarding fingerprint evidence in the case of The State of New Hampshire v. Richard Langill. The case has been remanded back to the Rockingham County Superior Court.
