The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) will hold a training seminar on DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) forensics technology to selected Filipino policemen on Thursday to help improve police investigation in the country.

The one-day event, which will be held at the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City, is part of a weeklong series of activities in celebration of National Biotechnology Week.

The seminar is aimed at providing awareness and knowledge on the use and application of DNA forensics technology in court cases among prosecution and defense lawyers, judges, and the police, the DOST said.

The topics that would be discussed during the seminar include DNA forensics technology overview, DNA testing and analysis, limitations of DNA evidence, legal implications of DNA collection or gathering in crime scenes, and crime scene collection principles with focus on biological sampling. – Helen Flores
