The Serology/DNA unit is responsible for analysis of evidence from crimes against persons and property with the purpose of identifying and individualizing biological materials found as a part of that evidence. The Serology/DNA unit also participates in CODIS (Combined DNA Index System), the FBI’s national DNA database program. CODIS blends forensic science and computer technology into an effective tool for solving crimes, by enabling federal, state, and local crime laboratories to exchange and compare DNA profiles electronically, thereby linking crimes to each other and to convicted offenders.
