Abstract

Criminal investigations can rely heavily on DNA evidence and, while matching a DNA profile with that of a suspect or a previous offender might sound like a simple task, real life cases are often much more complicated. What happens when more context is required than a simple profile match, or when there is no match at all? Can DNA give us more information than we have suspected? Is epigenetics the elementary answer to our questions, my dear Watson?.
