| | Re: DNA Analysis
It's not my opion, as my opinion is probably erroneous. But New Scientist polled labs in the UK, US, Aus and New Zeland of which some results are as follows:
The Police have to much faith in DNA profiling and don't understand its limitations -
14 Analysts questioned:
7 Strongly Agree,
Bias in interpritation of DNA profiles may sometimes lead to incorrect matchs between a suspect and evidence sample -
4 Strongly Agree,
1 Strongly Disagree.
Small group polled but an interesting article none the less. The full list of results can be found at newscientist dot com /aritcle/dn19317

Hope this helps?
