    highly variable stuttered regions, termed minisatellites, in which the number of stutters leads to variation. The discovery of both types of variation in DNA led Jeffreys to the accidental discovery of DNA fingerprinting. With this new technique came the ability to distinguish every individual based on variations in the DNA sequence. His work with DNA fingerprinting was used in the investigation of the two murders in Narborough to identify the baker as the culprit. This technique is still…

    electrophoresis gel to prepare and differentiate fingerprints (Bertino 165). Which is then uploaded to the Combined DNA Index System (CODIS). Allowing access to registered crime lab officials to share and compare DNA profiles (Dale and Becker 176). Sharing this information aids police investigations as mitochondrial DNA can be extracted from fragments of bone and compared to maternal DNA to help identify the skeletal remains of a body. The Immunochromatographic test devices and the OneStep…
