Length Of The Dna Fragments
345 wordsDNA Fingerprinting It is widely known that each individual has a DNA profile as unique as a fingerprint. Actually, over 99% of all 3 billion nucleotides in human DNA which we inherit from each parent are identical among all individuals. However, for every 1000 nucleotides that we inherit there is 1 site of variation or polymorphism, in the population. These DNA polymorphisms change the length of the DNA fragments produced by the digestion of restriction enzymes. The resulting fragments are calle...
616 wordsBiology / Sociology One in a Million DNA fingerprinting (the use of a persons DNA to identify them) has become a hot topic in the field of law enforcement as well as the entire world. The controversy exists on whether or not it should be admitted in court as evidence at this time. Some experts believe that the present technology allows DNA fingerprinting to be used in cases for positive identification (proof that the DNA match was at the scene of the crime) because of the extreme unlikeness that...
Rape And The Dna Test
1,341 wordsDNA and Crime Deoxyribonucleic Acid - the fingerprint of life also know as DNA was first mapped out in the early 1950's by British biophysicist, Francis Harry Compton Crick and American biochemist James Dewey Watson. They determined the three-dimensional structure of DNA, the substance that passes on the genetic characteristics from one generation to the next. DNA is found in the chromosomes in the nucleus of a cell. ' Every family line has it's own unique pattern of restriction-enzyme DNA fragm...
Forensic Scientists Use Computer Animation
804 wordsForensic Science has contributed to our world a great deal. People often misunderstand Forensic Science and believe it is much more capable than it really is. As a matter of fact what you see on T.V. is around 80% false or over exaggerated in some way. To Start of, Criminal Investigation is the largest and most known form of Forensic Science. Some of the more known areas include; Fingerprinting, Ballistics, DNA Identification, Fiber Samples, Computer Animation, Documentation analysis, etc. To ge...
Dna As A National Identification System
552 wordsShould a national identification system in which each Americans DNA pattern is registered be established Has the U.S. come to the point where we have to devise a national identification system in which everyones DNA pattern is registered in a network of computers I believe so, and the process of using a persons DNA pattern for a national identification system is a very good idea. This identification system could be used to offer new jobs, put criminals - who are guilty - in jail, and also provid...
Every Persons Dna Fingerprint On A Database
869 wordsThe DNA inside a single cell is two metres in length. Of this two metres, only 3-5% of the genetic material codes for genes or proteins. The remainder of the DNA strand is called the non-coding or "junk" DNA. The DNA fingerprinting process involves the analysis of these non-coding portions of the DNA strand, generally taken from a sample of hair, saliva or semen. This process is often confused with DNA sampling, which is the analysis of the entire DNA genome. In 1983, Sir Alec Jeffreys, a Britis...
Forensic Photography And Crime Scene
735 wordsForensic Science Forensic Science is the application of chemistry to the investigation of crime. It includes firearms and toolmark identification, forensic psychiatry and profiling, questioned document examination, criminal law, personal identification, forensic photography and crime scene processing. They analyze things like hair, fiber, body fluids, bullets, paint, soil, glass, shoe impressions, fingerprints, drugs, and plant material. Their work is not only limited to crimes against individua...
Increasing Use Of The Dna Fingerprint
1,020 wordsDNA Dna Fingerprinting DNA Fingerprinting DNA Fingerprinting is also referred to as DNA profiling and DNA typing. It was first developed as an identification technique in England in 1985. The original use was to expose the presence of any genetic diseases. About three years later it became used to identify criminals through the analysis of genetic material and to settle paternity disputes. It is still used for those reasons today. The DNA fingerprinting process is called gel electrophoresis. It ...
