Proposal Information


The Biological Science Casework Section provides submitting agencies with access to Forensic Serology and Forensic DNA Testing of selected biological materials that are associated with criminal investigations.
Forensic Serology is the identification, collection and preservation of biological materials that may be used in DNA analysis. Forensic DNA Analysis is the process of developing DNA profiles from biological evidence to use for comparison purposes. These profiles can be used to develop investigative leads, identify perpetrators of crimes and exonerate the innocent. Should a suitable DNA profile be developed from crime scene evidence, it may be entered into the FBI-administered Combined DNA Index System (CODIS) for searching at the local, state and/or national levels.
