Study Reveals Forensic Facial Examiners Can Be Near Perfect In what might be the first face-off of its kind, trained forensics examiners from the FBI and law enforcement agencies worldwide were far more accurate in identifying faces in photographs than nonexperts and even computers.Ancestral Background Can Be Determined By Fingerprints A proof-of-concept study finds that it is possible to identify an individual’s ancestral background based on his or her fingerprint characteristics – a discovery with significant applications for law enforcement and anthropological research.CSI -- On The Metabolite's Trail Bioinformaticians at the University of Jena make the most efficient search engine for molecular structures available online.Study Finds People Emit Their Own Personal Microbial Cloud We each give off millions of bacteria from our human microbiome to the air around us every day, and that cloud of bacteria can be traced back to an individual.Blood, Teeth Samples Predict a Criminal's Age Forensic biomedical scientists from KU Leuven have developed a test to predict individuals’ age on the basis of blood or teeth samples. This test may be particularly useful for the police, as it can help track down criminals or identify human remains.Contactless Fingerprint Technology is Coming Quickly moving through security checkpoints by showing your hand to a scanner seems straight out of science fiction, but NIST is working with industry to bring fast, touchless fingerprint readers out of the lab and into the marketplace.Determining the Age of Fingerprints Watch the imprint of a tire track in soft mud, and it will slowly blur, the ridges of the pattern gradually flowing into the valleys. Researchers have tested the theory that a similar effect could be used to give forensic scientists a way to date fingerprints.Yorkshire Scientists Could Hold Key to Preventing Future Horsemeat Scandals Incidents like the horse meat scandal, which caused extensive damage to the UK’s farming and retail industry, could be consigned to the past thanks to revolutionary technology developed in the UK. Was Shakespeare high? State-of-the-art forensic technology from South Africa has been used to try and unravel the mystery of what was smoked in tobacco pipes found in the Stratford-upon-Avon garden of British playwright William Shakespeare.DNA Could Put a Face to the Crime in the Future An Irish geneticist is pioneering forensic techniques that can estimate a person’s appearance from a DNA sample.
