Transcript of DNA databases

Timeline 2009 1996 1998 1999 2003 FORENSICS IS COOL 0 + - = 9 8 7 1 2 3 4 5 6 c WHAT IS DNA? A DNA Database is a compilation of peoples
DNA. The FBI and Police access to this thru CODIS. How would this help? A CBS investigation of 5 months and 24 states there was 20,000 rape cases unsolved.
Yes a lot are because of back log of workers but also if we have a database with every ones DNA they could solve the crimes so much faster. AND if we use this for only crime the hospitals would not have access to your DNA to do test what you may get when your older health wise HOW CAN THEY TAKE MY DNA? They can collect your DNA thru a cheek cell swab that is painless and wont tell them anything about your family or health conditions you may be prone to when you are older. It would only be able to establish if you where at a crime scene or not. WHY SOMONE MAY NOT LIKE THIS There is an argument about using a
DNA database for everyone would be
against the 4th amendment right.

It could cost a lot of money to cheek
cell swab all people.

Why would you want the government to
have a hold of your DNA?

Being used for Health care and medical
research. DNA DATABASES Should the United States Government establish a DNA databank for ALL citizens? Deoxyribonucleic acid, a self-replicating material present in nearly all living organisms as the main constituent of chromosomes. WHAT IS A DNA DATABASE? First DNA Database is created by home secretary Michael Howard. Chief Supt. Peter Gammon wants the establishment of National DNA Database of the entire population. Merseyside police expand from just collecting DNA from charged criminals to anyone reported, charged. The total population of genetic samples in the database grows to over 2 million The database has increased 40% in two years. Recently there has been talk of having a national DNA database. Where everyone would have to input there DNA. so wed have a national database. WHY WE SHOULD DO IT!!!! YES DNA DATABASES COULD BE SPENDY BUT IT COULD ALSO HELP CONVICT criminals. I BELIVE THAT WE SHOULD HAVE DNA DATABASES FOR EVERYONE BUT THE SHOULD NOT BE USED FOR MEDICAL REASONS ONLY TO HELP SOLVE CRIMES. SOURCES Articles:
