Foren­sic ex­perts seek global stan­dards on DNA

China Daily European Weekly - - News Di­gest -

Foren­sic ex­perts at an in­ter­na­tional con­fer­ence said on Sept 17 that uni­fied stan­dards and reg­u­lated pro­ce­dures in DNA iden­ti­fi­ca­tion will play a big­ger role in fight­ing crime and safe­guard­ing pub­lic safety by in­creas­ing co­op­er­a­tion. The Silk Road Foren­sic Con­sor­tium pro­vides a plat­form for foren­sic ex­perts from home and abroad to ex­change ideas and chal­lenges, and it can do more in DNA iden­ti­fi­ca­tion stud­ies and ap­pli­ca­tions, the ex­perts said at the 3rd Con­fer­ence of the Silk Road Foren­sic Con­sor­tium in Yan­tai, Shan­dong prov­ince. The con­sor­tium is plan­ning to unify DNA iden­ti­fi­ca­tion stan­dards and reg­u­late the iden­ti­fi­ca­tion pro­ce­dures of its mem­bers in “try­ing to build a mu­tual DNA data­base to bet­ter help solve crim­i­nal cases”, said Henry Chang-Yu Lee, a glob­ally renowned foren­sic sci­en­tist and the con­sor­tium’s chair­man.
