Description:

This site offers four interactive modules that investigate the applications of DNA science to improve medicine and society. The modules focus on forensic analysis, such as DNA fingerprinting, solving the mystery of Anastasia Romanov, and using DNA to determine human origins, as well as using DNA to advance human health. Each module is subdivided into additional parts. These parts include videos of scientists, computer simulations, and tutorials. One tutorial covers The Innocence Project,a non-profit legal clinic that uses DNA evidence to help convicted criminals prove their innocence. In one simulation, visitors can match DNA samples between a convicted criminal and those collected from the scene of the crime. Copyright 2005 Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
