FOCUS ON COUNTRIES WITH EMERGING DNA SYSTEMS
Many forensic DNA systems in Asia and around the world have been established or enhanced with the collective efforts of our consultants & partners. While some nations in the region have been able to establish quality DNA database programs backed by strong legislations, we continue to help others realize the value of this human identification technology by aiding them in establishing, implementing, and expanding their programs

WHY SHOULD COUNTRIES HAVE OFFENDER DNA DATABASES?
In cases where a suspect has not yet been identified, biological evidence from the crime scene can be analyzed and compared to offender profiles in DNA databases to help identify the perpetrator. In essence, a forensic DNA database is a powerful investigative tool that can generate investigative leads when there are none. That’s not all. DNA databases can even be used to identify mortal remains and missing persons by matching the DNA of their families. Additionally, studies have shown that DNA databases not only help solve cases but also help prevent crime, exonerate the innocent, and save public money.
