Rape Kit Backlogs - Importance of Forensic Science - Good Housekeeping

In Los Angeles, a recent decision to test every booked rape kit uncovered DNA evidence from suspects in additional rape cases. Testing every kit, and giving law enforcement the resources they need to investigate sexual assaults fully, makes a dramatic difference in victims' lives — and public safety. Failing to test rape kits denies justice for victims and allows perpetrators to remain free.  Yet the benefit of testing rape kits goes beyond providing prosecutors with investigative tools to bring offenders to justice. It goes beyond just bringing the clarity of DNA evidence into the arena [more...]

There have been more than 400 reported sightings of the half-man, half-ape in the Shennongjia area.

Al Fin: A Hint of Epigenetics

We are learning that the genetic code is only the short, first chapter in a very long book. The non-genetic "code" -- the non-coding DNA and RNA -- has a logic all its own. We are just beginning to decrypt the obscure cipher. The possibilities for the transformation of life as we know it seem just as grandiose as were the hopes of the early promoters of the human genome enterprise. Only this time, we are working at a deeper level of sophistication. How many more levels will we need to descend before we reach the promised land of genetic medicine? ... some 95 or 98 percent of human DNA was [more...]

Part of the reason for this is if one decides to take into account the plethora of species-specific DNA insertions and deletions ("indels") that are present along any segment compared between chimp and human, the percentage of identity drops. Another reason is that duplications, inversions, translocations, and transpositions at all scales uniquely characterize the two genome sequences -- these have to be untangled before aligning the sequences in order to measure their similarity. Also, the 99% identity figure is often derived from protein-coding regions that only comprise about 1.5% of the [more...]

When a person reports a sexual assault, she - or he - will be asked to undergo a sexual assault evidence collection kit (a "rape kit") exam, a four- to six-hour process to collect DNA evidence from his or her body. Rape kit testing can identify an unknown assailant, confirm a suspect's contact with the victim, corroborate the victim's account of the assault, identify serial rapists by connecting crime scene evidence from separate incidents, and exonerate innocent suspects.

Although Davies generally appears to be a proponent of consumer genomics, he also provides examples of the possible risks of widespread DNA testing in addition to the benefits. While reading this book, I found strong parallels between Davies’ general themes and 23andMe’s overall philosophy. Both Davies and 23andMe stress the importance of “empowering the individual” and “democratizing genetics”.  Direct-to-consumer genetic testing puts the power of knowledge into the hands of the individual, in contrast to what is often deemed the paternalistic nature of the medical [more...]

Evolution News & Views: When "Junk DNA" Isn't Junk: Farewell to a ...

In the Darwinist repertoire, a standard response to evidence of design in the genome is to point to the existence of "junk DNA." What is it doing there, if purposeful design really is detectable in the history of life's development? Of course this assumes that the "junk" really is junk. That assumption has been cast increasingly into doubt. New research just out in the journal Nature Genetics finds evidence that genetic elements previously thought of as rubbish are anything but that. The research describes tiny strands of RNA, previously thought to be junk, that now turn out to play a role in [more...]
