Events taking Forensic DNA into disputable areas leads to firings, lawsuits and rancor

Having just returned from the forensic science AAFS annual meeting, all I heard from the DNA people was that their conference was quiet and rather boring. They seemed to prefer sitting in the odontology bitemark session which was SRO. We all heard more of the “baby out with the bath water” pleadings which were predicted in last week’s from post. Boringgg.

This “touch” DNA controversy is entirely another matter. This is not boring.
