Infographic Nov 09, 2018
The dawn of forensic DNA analysis has had a large part to play in the evolution of criminal and private investigations. Even the smallest residues can be used to place someone at a crime scene or determine how people are related to one another. Forensic DNA analysis doesn’t stop with people either, law enforcers are using the techniques to combat smuggling of animals and exotic woods too.

The availability of technologies for the generation of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) from somatic cells has allowed researchers to generate limitless pools of iPSCs retaining the genetic makeup of the somatic cells from which they were derived. Together, iPSCs and CRISPR-Cas9 systems provide researchers with effective in vitro tools for assessing gene function, disease modeling, and regenerative therapy.READ MORE
