Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $715,347)

The goal of this project is to develop a means of establishing a data set quantifying seven characteristics of the human dentition. This project will determine the amount of agreement between a patterned injury in a porcine model to a known data set of seven dental characteristics by using standards and methods previously reported and accepted as valid. Standardization of techniques will enhance the confidence level of law enforcement in the utilization of the information that can be provided in cases involving bitemark evidence. ca/ncf
