Folder 3 - Forensic DNA Databasing

There is a large literature on social, ethical and legal aspects of the collection, use, and retention of DNA profiles for forensic DNA databasing in an increasing number of criminal jurisdictions. This folder includes many of the most important publications in this field. It covers the range of issues that are conventionally addressed in this literature and provides examples that focus on a number of different criminal jurisdictions. Some papers extend the coverage of national forensic DNA databases to include a discussion of emerging mechanisms and patterns of the international exchange – especially within Europe - of forensic DNA profile data.
