I think I’ve had a very interesting career so far. It’s been very different than I expected it to be! I did have some initial challenges in my first job. I had a hard time with the office politics, and I had to change jobs. That was about it. I’m still learning and I still have a lot to learn.
But the thing is, in my new job I am dealing with crime scenes and DNA samples, not just looking at DNA samples. I have to think about all the ways that DNA can tie together in a crime.
DNA is a very simple form of DNA. It is a small piece of DNA from a human being that is found in a crime scene. If you have a crime scene that includes blood, saliva, semen, hair, or anything else that can be used to link a person to the crime, that DNA can be used to link the person to the crime. So while it is easy to use DNA in criminal cases, DNA is useful in many other places too. Like for forensics.
Forensics is a branch of forensic science that involves examining evidence that was collected from a crime scene for clues and to determine the type of evidence that was present at the scene. We use DNA to find evidence that was left in a crime scene. This is important because it helps us put suspects’ fingerprints back in the wrong places. Also, we use DNA to link two people to a crime scene.
DNA is actually the most common type of evidence found in crime scenes because of its ability to link two suspects. The more DNA samples we get, the more suspects we are able to put in place. There are also ways to link samples together and create patterns that can tell investigators who the other samples belong to.
The science of forensics uses DNA to link people who are suspects to their crimes. It also helps investigators piece together a crime scene so they can determine an offender’s identity. Our favorite part of the trailer is how the scientists are able to use the same type of technology to identify a suspect’s DNA from a sample that is found in a crime scene.
This reminds me of what one of the scientists at the crime scene said, “We’ve been trying to figure all this out for years, but we still haven’t found what happened.” He was referring to the fact that the crime scene was found in an old warehouse with only the walls and floors covered with graffiti. The only one who knew what happened was the victim, and he was nowhere to be found.
Our crime scene is a warehouse, but the victim was found in an old warehouse. So when we look at DNA, the person we’re looking for is the person who was at the crime scene, who was not there. If there is no DNA in a crime scene sample, we can’t tell if a person is the suspect we’re looking for. So even though the victim is an unknown, the lab still has to find a match.
That’s where our dna technology comes in. We can see if the DNA is from the same person in the crime scene, and if the DNA is from a similar person, we can find the source. This is called “dna technology.” The most common sources of DNA are saliva, fingernails, hair, and semen.
Our crime scene DNA samples are taken before the autopsy, and are sent to a lab for analysis. This is because the autopsy doesn’t always tell you everything about your victim. Also, the labs are required to be accredited by the State of California (the state the lab is located in). If they are not accredited, they can’t test for dna.
