Scientific advancements from the discovery of dna to more precise methods of trace evidence analysis have also led to unfathomable changes in the field of forensic science the discovery of dna paved the way for more statistically significant identification of a suspect or victim than the fingerprint had been previously able. For instance, if a dna extraction method or the use of specific set poly- merase chain reaction (pcr) primers gives successful results on an ancient sample, it is likely that the same methods will be successfully applied on forensic samples the work presented in this thesis is focusing on evaluation of new and highly.
