DNA and criminal justice


Proceedings of a conference held 30-31 October 1989

Julia Vernon and Ben Selinger (eds)


The papers presented at this conference examine DNA profiling and how it impinges on the criminal justice system. Scientists, lawyers and police explain how this new expert evidence affects their areas of work. Developments such as Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) are presented, and the problems of quality control are revealed in detail. These matters are of great importance when treating evidence in court.
