DNA Analysis

Examine evidence for the presence of biological material.  Develop, analyze, and interpret DNA profiles utilizing scientific techniques.  Compare DNA profiles with known standards to establish identity/exclusion/association and conduct database searches.

DNA Databank

Receive, verify acceptability, process, analyze, and maintain a repository of reference DNA samples in the Combined DNA Index System (CODIS).
