IFS EDUCATION DEPT. ONLINE AND E-STUDY COURSES: (Revised on: 10 Aug. 2009 / 2012)
FORENSIC BIOTECHNOLOGY AND DNA FINGERPRINTING- SYLLABUS - Course Code: FBD-002
INTRODUCTION: Forensic science is a vital instrument for the detection or investigation of crime and the administration of justice, providing crucial information about the evidence found at crime scene, it is especially important that the training and education of forensic scientists provide a solid scientific background and a broad base in criminalistics. The validity of those results depends on the knowledge, skills, and experience of the forensic scientists working to obtain them. A forensic scientist must be capable of integrating knowledge and skills in the examination, analysis, interpretation, reporting, and testimonial support of evidence. Forensic analysis of biological evidence using biotechnology methods is increasingly important in criminal investigations. DNA forensics is now revolutionizing many aspects of criminal investigation. Analysis of DNA samples allows precise identifications to be made from very tiny bits of evidence collected at the crime scene. The most important legal issues revolve around the constitutionality of compulsory DNA testing at the time of arrest and the use of DNA profiling and population databases in police investigations. These are all Fourth Amendment issues and privacy concerns. Starting in 1999, for example, the U.S. government began taking samples of blood for DNA records on 99.8% of all babies born. According to various web resources- DNA Analyst can earn salary as $62,000 - $75,000 / Year. Supervisory DNA Analyst or Forensic Biotechnologist can earn $6,000 per month. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median hourly earnings of forensic science technicians are about $21.79 per hour and Those in private practice who offer consulting services typically earn more.
