Korean Speaking Working Group


Membership of the Korean Speaking Working Group (KSWG) is open to all Korean speaking members of the ISFG. There will be no other membership fee in addition to that payable to the ISFG.
 
The purpose of the KSWG is (1) to be a conduit of communication between Korean speaking individuals who are interested in forensic genetics, and (2) to contribute to the forensic community by working on projects which need multi-institute participation including a QA/QC program, and (3) to facilitate academic improvement of members through cooperation, and (4) to be a channel for international exchange in the forensic genetics community.
 

News

KSWG hosted “The 6th 2020 International Symposium on Forensic DNA in Law” online with Supreme Prosecutors’ Office on the first day of December, 2020. The main topic of this symposium was forensic DNA phenotyping, and two outstanding young scientists, Dr. Ewelina Pośpiech from Jagiellonian University, Poland and Dr. Athina Vidaki from Erasmus University Medical Center in Rotterdam, the Netherlands were invited to talk about “The project NEXT-current challenges in the genetic prediction of human appearance traits in forensics” and “Expansion of future DNA phenotyping based on DNA methylation.”
