New Way to Analyze DNA Evidence Under Development

Posted by: on Dec 3, 2014 | No Comments

The chair of the Department of Computer Science and an associate professor Desmond Lun,  at Rutgers–Camden, is part of a collaborative research team that has been awarded a $1.7 million Army Research Office grant to create a software program based on a computational method for analyzing DNA evidence. DNA can be found in human cells from blood, hair, and skin. When a forensic analyst takes a DNA sample from an object, the DNA from everyone who had contact with the object is potentially in the sample. Lun is working with researchers from Boston University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. For additional information and the full article, go to the website below:
