ROOM 207 


 Find out the truth as we take a trip into a forensic lab, and find out how analysis of crime scene DNA evidence works. We'll discuss how a DNA profile is generated, what information it provides, and how it is used to assist criminal and humanitarian investigations. We'll also discuss careers in Forensic Science and how interested students can prepare themselves for a career in Forensic Science. 

Brian Harmon has more than a decade of experience in forensic DNA analysis in his work for private labs, human rights projects and the government. He also provides training to forensic scientists from around the world.
