Description:

Attorney Allison Lewis from Legal Aid Society -DNA unit will give us a presentation on Familial DNA. A familial DNA search is a search by law enforcement in DNA databases for genetic information indicating a relative of a person they seek to identify. When a search for an exact match to a DNA sample comes up fruitless, a familial DNA search may bring back a partial match, indicating a sibling, child, parent or other blood relative.
