Will the real DNA please stand up


by blogger aaa

Studies show that DNA can be fabricated and placed at crime scenes. It was reported that the procedure is so easy that undergraduate students can perform it. Forensic science uses DNA to convict and/or acquit people everyday. If DNA can so easily be fabricated, What does that mean for us?

Current forensic procedure fails to distinguish between such samples of blood, saliva and touched surfaces with artificial DNA," the scientists wrote in an article recently published by "Forensic Science International: Genetics," a scientific journal...Researchers at Nucleix also demonstrated how one could implant DNA into real blood by using a centrifuge to separate red and white blood cells and placing the DNA in the former, giving the blood a new profile..."We have come up with a solution that should become an integral part of the standard DNA tests today and seal the hole that has been opened in what has become the gold-standard in forensics," said Ganor.

I guess we should hope this solution is just that a solution or we may need to find a new career.

Wow! This is really scary to think about. How could it be so easy to fool scientists? DNA is thought to be the main way to tell if someone is guilty, but this really puts this in doubt now.I know the article mentioned that there are ways to tell, but are scientists really doing this yet? TS

This seems somewhat far fetched to me. I understand that it would be possible to fool people in this manner, but would it really be possible to do something so complicated when in a volatile environment such as a crime scene? SE
