ATHENS, Ohio - A new DNA analysis technique under development at Ohio University may help authorities identify the remains of victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks when conventional tests don't work. The method could offer forensic scientists a new tool to examine badly degraded remains - such as those at the World Trade Center disaster site - and could help police name perpetrators of crimes.
The above story is based on materials provided by Ohio University. Note: Materials may be edited for content and length.
