The EUROFORGEN Network of Excellence has published in collaboration with the UK charity Sense about Science a guide for the wider public, the police and judiciary on "Making Sense of Forensic Genetics". The 38-page booklet is available for downloading here:

This guide shares what DNA analysis can currently do in the criminal justice system, what its limitations are, and what might be possible in the future. It includes graphics and real-life cases where DNA evidence has been a game changer in investigations as well as where its misuse has led to miscarriages of justice. The authors hope this guide will be a useful resource to anyone who works with, or crosses paths with DNA evidence in the criminal justice system.
