Basics of DNA Fingerprinting
By Kate Brinton and Kim-An Lieberman
This page was created as a class project at the University of Washington
to provide to the Internet basic information on the structure and
function of DNA as it relates to DNA fingerprinting. This topic is
especially pertinent in today's society because of the rising use of DNA
fingerprinting as evidence in court cases.
Thanks to Professor William Moody and Dr. John Medina.
