Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2007, $66,227)

This program furthers the Department's mission by offering an opportunity for States with existing laboratories that conduct DNA analysis of convicted offender and/or arrestee DNA samples ("DNA database samples") to reduce their backlog of such samples through in-house analysis and through data review of DNA profiles generated by fee-for-service vendors from DNA database samples. These activities are critical to accelerating the analysis of DNA data base samples collected by States in order to provide timely CODIS- compatible data for all 13 CODIS core STR loci for State National DNA databases. nca/ncf
