Special Issue Information
Forensic Genetics has—mainly due to the advent of modern DNA technologies—undergone an impressive development leading to exciting possibilities in forensic genetic work with criminal cases, relationship testing, identification of human remains, animal and plant forensics, etc. This Special Issue is dedicated to the presentation of the current status of forensic genetics and discussion of future challenges and goals through invited presentations. Colleagues are encouraged to submit manuscripts with original research in forensic genetics.
Prof. Dr. Niels Morling
