Forensic DNA Relationship Training: General & Advanced Sessions
May 23, 2016 - 9:00AM to May 26, 2016 - 4:00PM
Marshall University Forensic Science Center offers Forensic Relationship Training, as part of our Forensic DNA Training Program. Laboratory analysts interested in implementing cases related to relationships (paternity/maternity, body identification, reconstructions, etc.) into their current workflow will benefit from the training sessions we provide.
Our goal is to provide agencies the requisite knowledge and training to perform relationship comparison cases instead of out-sourcing these case types.
