Using forensic epigenetics to solve crimes

In this new Investigator blog, Dr. Athina Vidaki, a post-doctoral researcher at Erasmus University Medical Center, Rotterdam, discusses how changes in DNA methylation biomarkers can help identify cell types in forensic samples, estimate the age of an unknown person and even discriminate between monozygotic twins with identical DNA profiles.
