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.
This webpage is currently under construction and more information on the goals and initiatives of the Korean Speaking Working Group will be posted shortly.


Many KSWG members participated in the symposium on "Criminal DNA databases and Forensic Genetics” that took place during the 2011 annual meeting of the Korean Society for Molecular and Cellular Biology.
The 2014 IAFS meeting will be held in Seoul.
