Regulating new forms of forensic DNA profiling under Australian legislation: familial matching and DNA phenotyping
Forensic DNA profiling uses non-coding parts of the human genome to compare DNA profiles and establish links between individuals and crimes under investigation. In most situations, only a complete match between such profiles is significant.
