Panelists talked about genetics, forensics, and their use in the criminal justice system and society. They discussed the DNA evidence routinely used in criminal cases as well as in investigations of mass graves, missing persons, and for identification. After the break, Nita Farahany talked about how behavior sciences impact the legal system, and Hank Greely talked about whole genome sequencing, the implications of pre-natal genetic testing, and the privacy and ethical issues raised when everyone’s genomes are known and stored. Speakers used PowerPoint during their presentations. Images included skeletons, mass graves, and DNA sources. Panelists responded to questions from members of the audience after their individual presentations and as a group. This was part of the 2013 10th Circuit Bench and Bar Conference at the Broadmoor Resort in Colorado Springs. close
