How can NGS help Law Enforcement solve more cases?

This brief training video explains:

  • What Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) is and how it differs from traditional forensic DNA testing technologies
  • The utility of NGS for challenging biological evidence, i.e. trace, degraded and complex mixed DNA samples
  • How NGS recently resolved a complex sexual assault case in the Netherlands, resulting in the first court conviction using this groundbreaking method
  • Investigative intelligence capabilities, including ancestry and visible trait estimation, as well as genetic genealogy
  • How to use this technology for active and cold case investigations
