DNA Profiling: Its Uses in Court

Written by Tom LeBaron

Stronger evidence in courtrooms—it’s what every attorney, defendant, and plaintiff dreams of. Beginning inrepparttar last 1980s, this is exactly what began to surface through DNA profiling.

In addition torepparttar 127588 one-of-a-kind pattern engraved on our fingers, each of us possesses a unique identifier that is built within our bodies. DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) isrepparttar 127589 genetic blueprint that determines our biological characteristics. DNA is a long molecule located in almost every cell inrepparttar 127590 human body. When we are conceived, we inherit half of our DNA from our mother and half from our father. Although every human’s DNA is 99.9% identical,repparttar 127591 remaining 0.1% is enough to uniquely identify an individual. Our DNA is made up of about 3 billion base pairs,repparttar 127592 building blocks of DNA composed mainly of carbon and sugar. The 0.1% (3 million) base pairs that make us unique are what constitute our DNA fingerprint.

Overrepparttar 127593 past 20 years, courts have been able to rely uponrepparttar 127594 consistent accuracy of DNA profiling, also known as DNA fingerprinting, to solve crimes. DNA profiling has even been used to solve crimes that are more than 30 years old.

Here’s how DNA profiling is done:

  • Specimens are collected fromrepparttar 127595 crime scene. Anything can be used to extract DNA: Hair, blood, bodily fluids, etc. In some cases, victims may have scratched their attackers, in which case skin cells can be extracted from underneathrepparttar 127596 victim’s fingernails in order to identifyrepparttar 127597 criminal

  • Matrix and the NSTP ( Non - Spatial Thinking Process ) Theory

    Written by Dr Kedar Joshi FSS PBSSI MRI

    The NSTP ( Non - Spatial Thinking Process ) theory isrepparttar most advanced, theoretically accurate, unificatory theory that is deeply related torepparttar 127587 idea ofrepparttar 127588 whole world to be a matrix. Throughrepparttar 127589 NSTP theoretical perspective space (as a room or void out there) is a projection of non - spatial mind, which isrepparttar 127590 reality. Space is a mere form of illusion, a virtual reality. Thusrepparttar 127591 theory speaks of two worlds : 1. Spatial (the pseudo one) and 2.
