Biological basis for DNA evidence

Duncan Taylor, Jo Anne Bright, John S. Buckleton

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This book deals in large part with the interpretation of DNA evidence, mixed or unmixed, after it has been collected, stored, transferred and finally analyzed in the laboratory. The supposition throughout is that the earlier stages in the chain that leads to evidence in court have been undertaken correctly. The inference at the final end of the chain is practically useless unless all these earlier aspects have been undertaken with due attention to continuity and integrity.1
