Forensic DNA analysis has played a crucial role in the investigation and resolution of thousands of crimes since the late 1980s.
The demand for tools and technologies in all areas of forensic science, including DNA testing, far exceed the current capabilities of the field. To help meet that demand, the NIJ has funded forensic DNA research and development projects for over a decade.
