Italian Speaking Working Group

The Ge.F.I. ("Genetisti Forensi Italiani"; formerly "Gruppo Ematologici Forensi Italiani") was created in 1964 and it consists of approximately 100 scientists, mostly of the forensic area. The requirements for being enrolled in the GeFI are, in this order:
  • to be a practitioner in the field
  • to be accepted by the ISFG
Since 2006, the group has worked on collaborative exercises on a number of topics, including Y-STRs, X-STRs, Y-SNPs, and mini STRs.
Please visit the new Ge.F.I. website for all further information, including the new system for proficiency testing.
