Use of Biotechnology in Forensics
How is it being used currently?
Economically, it has drained millions of dollars in government funding which could be used on other things.
Being as the use of biotechnology is such an efficient form of crime investigation, it has been used by numerous police agencies in countries around the world.
In the future, forensic science will become more often used with the development of new biotechnology. As time goes on, less and less physical evidence will be required for a person to be identified. It will also most likely require people to give more DNA evidence more frequently, earlier in their life. Who knows, at some point even babies could have their genetic markers mapped the day they're born.
