Provided by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) Forensic Technology Center of Excellence (FTCoE), this software forensic training tool was developed specifically to provide training in the use of MPS, which uses advanced technology platforms to analyze millions of strands of DNA at a time, enabling analysts to look at many more Short Tandem Repeats (STRs), including nuclear STRs and the STRs found on the Y chromosome, as well as hundreds to thousands of Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) in one run. The software training tool for MPS creates a virtual-reality forensic laboratory similar to that of a video game. The FTCoE debuted this tool in a workshop at an International Symposium on Human Identification. Attendees indicated they had been exposed to presentations on MPS technology previously, but had never been able to grasp it at the molecular levels. With the new tool, users become the lab worker who does the work, accompanied by an explanation of why the user is doing the action portrayed. When the user completes a step, the tool explains the science underlying the step. This software can be used as no-cost training that does not require travel or access to the needed equipment for multiple trainees.
