Bode Technology announced that it has been awarded a $437K grant (15PNIJ-21-GG-04143-MUMU) from the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) under the Research and Development in Forensic Science for Criminal Justice Purposes grant program to address pressing research in the groundbreaking field of Investigative Genetic Genealogy (IGG) that enables law enforcement to solve more cold cases.
The grant titled “Comparative Evaluation of Genotyping Technologies for Investigative Genetic Genealogy in Sexual Assault Casework” will evaluate the reliability and effectiveness of the various laboratory approaches utilized in IGG on the samples typically encountered by crime laboratories. Investigative Genetic Genealogy is increasingly being used to uncover new investigative leads on cold cases.
“Investigative Genetic Genealogy has proven to be one of the most powerful new forensic techniques of the past decade. However, more underlying research is needed to allow users of the technology to make informed decisions on the best approach for their forensic evidence which can often be limited in both quality and quantity,” said Mike Cariola,…
