Project description

Trace DNA evidence is central to so many forensic science investigations. Every contact can leave a trace, in this case cells from fingers and hands, and work by Flinders University has developed a means to see these cells. Projects include the examination of trace DNA on firearms, improvised explosive devices, and paraphernalia relating to clandestine synthesis of controlled substances.
