Promega sponsors conference on human identification

Promega : 20 September, 2007  (Company News)
Symposium examines the future possibilities for DNA identification technology
Someday, DNA may provide enough information to describe a criminal suspect, a possibility that is one of the topics to be discussed at the 18th International Symposium on Human Identification sponsored by Promega Corporation. This year's symposium looks at the future for DNA analysis—what's possible and what might go too far.

Keynote speaker, Sir Alec Jeffreys, presents a novel perspective of the future as the scientist who discovered DNA fingerprinting over 20 years ago. Jeffreys will share his thoughts on what has surprised him about the path of DNA analysis to-date and what he sees coming.

"As DNA technologies continue to evolve, the analyst is under pressure to do more with less," explains Promega CEO Bill Linton. "It's critical to support analysts' work by providing a forum where the experts describe the latest techniques and challenges and discuss what is on the horizon."

Also included in this year's symposium presentations and workshops is the popular session on "Interesting Cases." The cases feature:.

* A Failed Bank Robbery - When a robber slammed into a locked door face first, the DNA sample left behind led to the suspect.

* DNA Testing on Rare Animals - Testing the DNA of desert tortoises and golden eagles in criminal cases provided evidence on the suspected capture of protected wildlife.

* Another Use for Duct Tape - Duct tape used in the commission of a crime led to the DNA profile of the suspect.

The International Symposium for Human Identification is the largest gathering for DNA analysts in the world. This year's event takes place in Hollywood at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel.
