2018 NIJ R&D Symposium - Forensic Biology / DNA
The FTCoE assisted the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) in hosting the annual NIJ Forensic Science Research & Development (R&D) Symposium on February 20th, 2018 at the 70th Annual American Academy of Forensic Sciences (AAFS) meeting in Seattle, WA.
Original Live Symposium took place on 02/20/2018

Multi-Locus Match Probability Dependencies
 - Bruce Weir: University of Washington

Record Linkage of CODIS Profiles with SNP Genotypes
 - Michael D. Edge: Stanford University

Microhaplotypes Analyzed by Massively Parallel Sequencing Are Valuable Forensic Tools

Production of High-Fidelity Electropherograms Results in Improved and Consistent Match-Statistics: Standardizing Forensic Validation by Coupling Laboratory Specific Experimental Data with an In Silico DNA Pipeline
 - Catherine Grgicak: Boston University

The 2018 NIJ Forensic Science R&D Symposium featured a full day of forensic scientific sessions.  The FTCoE and NIJ hosted 16 separate Forensic R&D presentations during the event.

The NIJ Forensic Science Research and Development Symposium was a free and open meeting where attendees learned about NIJ-funded research across a variety of forensic science areas.

This Symposium was recorded in its entirety at the time of the Live event in order to capture the one on one interaction with the presenter. Funding for this Forensic Technology Center of Excellence event has been provided by the National Institute of Justice.
