Using the human microbiome to decipher crime scene traces
14 September 2020
By applying next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies to analyse the genomes of microorganisms that live in and/or on different parts of the human body, forensic investigators are now able to deduce the string of events that took place at a crime scene – all from tiny biological traces perpetrators left behind.
