This text covers the legal and scientific aspects of DNA collection and analysis and the presentation of DNA evidence in Canadian criminal courts. The book addresses practical questions such as the methods of collection of a DNA sample from the crime scene or suspect, the science of DNA analysis and typing, preparation of a DNA warrant, presentation of DNA evidence to a judge or jury, and the role of the expert witness in the specific context of DNA evidence. Postconviction issues are also covered, in particular the National DNA Databank and theoretical issues, such as the nature of DNA evidence.
