Forensic Biology (DNA)


The Forensic Biology section of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation performs serological and DNA analyses of physiological fluids for the purpose of identification and individualization. The type of material typically examined includes, but is not limited to semen and saliva collected at crime scenes or from articles of physical evidence. These types of physiological fluids are frequently generated during the commission of violent crimes such as homicides, rapes or assaults. The GBI's ultimate goal is to identify what type of body fluid is present and then, through the use of DNA analysis, link that material to a specific person.  Forensic DNA results aid law enforcement and the legal system in pursuit of justice.
