DNA Evidence

How can DNA be used to solve Crimes?


Objective describe how dna can be analyzed and used as evidence
Objective: Describe how DNA can be analyzed and used as evidence.

Do Now: Why is DNA considered circumstantial evidence?

In groups of 5 or less, work together on the DNA questions. Write all names and answers on loose-leaf paper. Hand in.

Closure: At a crime scene, list at least 3 places investigators should look for DNA evidence.


Objectives: Describe what DNA is and identify the different types of DNA

Do Now: Where can DNA come from? Brainstorm all evidence that may have DNA


What is dna

Objectives: Describe what DNA is and identify the different types of DNA

What is DNA?

DNA contains genetic information.

Found on chromosomes located in the nucleus of our cells**

Individual Evidence


Objectives: Describe how DNA can be analyzed and used as evidence. Explain the importance of CODIS in forensic science.

CYTOSINE

THYMINE

GUANINE

ADENINE

  • Made up of base pairs: (think of a bar code)

    • A – T

    • C – G

  • The order of the base pairs determines the genetic code


Complimentary base pairing
Complimentary Base Pairing

AGTACG

TCATGC


Human dna

Objectives: Describe how DNA can be analyzed and used as evidence. Explain the importance of CODIS in forensic science.

Human DNA

  • 50% of a person’s DNA comes from each parent

    • 23 pairs (46 chromosomes) in nucleus of most cells*

    • 1 chromosome in each pair is inherited from mother and other from the father

  • Every person has a different DNA

    sequence expect identical twins.

    **How can we distinguish between

    identical twins apart?


Types of human dna

Objectives: Describe the different types of DNA can be analyzed and used as evidence.

Types of Human DNA

  • NUCLEAR DNA: found in chromosomes

    • Used for DNA Fingerprinting

    • Unique to individual

  • MITOCHONDRIAL DNA: Found in mitochondria

    • Inherited from mother

    • Not unique

    • Example: bone, hair shaft


Why use mdna

Objectives: Describe how DNA can be analyzed and used as evidence.

Why use mDNA?

More stable over time/conditions*

Can get more DNA if sample is limited

Can get DNA from a highly degraded source


How is dna used

Objectives: Describe how DNA can be analyzed and used as evidence.

How is DNA used?

Identify a victim

Link or exclude suspect to crime scene/evidence

Link multiple crime scenes

Establish Maternity/Paternity


What factors affect dna evidence

Objectives: Describe how DNA can be analyzed and used as evidence.

What Factors Affect DNA evidence

Heat, sunlight, moisture, bacteria, and mold (this was a major issue in the O.J. Simpson Case)

Not all DNA evidence will result in a usable DNA profile.

DNA testing cannot identify when the suspect was at the crime scene or for how long.


What is codis

Objectives: Describe how DNA can be analyzed and used as evidence. Explain the importance of CODIS in forensic science.

What is CODIS?

Electronic database of DNA profiles that can identify suspects.

DNA profiles from individuals convicted of certain crimes, such as rape, murder, and child abuse, are entered into CODIS and help identify possible suspects when no prior suspect existed.


Introduction to dna fingerprinting

Objectives: Describe how DNA can be analyzed and used as evidence. Explain the importance of CODIS in forensic science.

http://law2.umkc.edu/faculty/projects/ftrials/Simpson/Dna.htm

Complete DNA and the O.J. Simpson case study

Closure: The DNA found at the scene only shows OJ was present for the crime. What other evidence could they/did they find to try to link him as their major suspect?


Do now what is a dna fingerprint

Objectives: Describe how a DNA fingerprint is performed

Do Now: What is a DNA Fingerprint?

The method of identification based on an individuals DNA:


2 main types of dna testing

Objectives: Describe how a DNA fingerprint is performed

2 Main Types of DNA Testing

  • RFLP: * analyzes variable lengths of DNA cut by restriction enzymes.

    • requires large amounts of DNA and no degradation

      RFLP: Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism.


Objectives: Describe how a DNA fingerprint is performed

Restriction enzymes: cut DNA at specific base sequences resulting in variable lengths of DNA


Objectives: Describe how a DNA fingerprint is performed

Gel Electrophoresis: Method of separating molecules of DNA within an electric field based on the size and charge of DNA fragments


Objectives describe how a dna fingerprint is performed

More probes taken, the better the match probability will be.

Denim blue jeans actually interfere with the restriction enzymes!


Objectives: Describe how a DNA fingerprint is performed

How are gel electrophoresis results analyzed?


Objectives: Describe how a DNA fingerprint is performed

DNA and Paternity


Objectives: Describe how a DNA fingerprint is performed

  • Complete the following activities:

    • Who are the parents

    • Which man is the father

  • Closure: If everyone gave their DNA to CODIS every substantial crime could be run through the CODIS program to produce cold hits. This would solve more crimes faster. Would you agree to giving your DNA to the government to run a program like that?


Objectives: Describe how a DNA fingerprint is performed

Do Now: What does a restriction enzyme do?


Objectives: Describe how a DNA fingerprint is performed

2nd Main type of DNA testing:

PCR: (Polymerase Chain Reactions) specific sequences of DNA that have high variability (differences) are copied millions of times

  • Less DNA needed and can be partially degraded


Objectives: Describe how a DNA fingerprint is performed

Newest type of DNA testing:

STR: Evaluates specific short repeating regions (loci) within nuclear DNA

FBI uses 13 standard specific STR regions for CODIS
