Keeping Forensic DNA Fingerprinting Samples Safe

A DNA test that reveals the presence or absence of the genetic barcode added to a DNA sample after being taken in the field. The first set of columns has no barcodes because no primers were used. The second set of columns display the barcodes the laboratory technicians are looking for. The third set of columns matches the second set, indicating a sample is authentic, while the fourth set of columns does not match, indicating something has gone awry with the samples.
