"Probably the most exciting, as I view it, of the new techniques emerging for the criminal investigator is the DNA identification technology. Through a genetic pattern-matching process, criminals can now be identified positively by comparing evidence from a crime scene - that is blood, body fluids, or sometimes a single hair - with that of a suspect." (William Sessions, Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation).
