Webinar: Modeling the DNA Lab Process

The Forensic Technology Center of Excellence is presenting a live webinar on Wednesday, November 16, 2016 at 1-2 p.m. CST titled, "Development of a Dynamic Model of the DNA Laboratory Process."

Speaker Catherine M. Grgicak, Ph.D. — an assistant professor in the Biomedical Forensic Sciences Program at Boston University's School of Medicine — will "detail the development of a model that synthesizes, in silico, allele, stutter, and noise signal generated from stochastic variation induced by the forensic DNA laboratory process."
