Doutores & engenheiros

Isto é muito interessante:
«Scientists in Israel have demonstrated that it is possible to fabricate DNA evidence, undermining the credibility of what has been considered the gold standard of proof in criminal cases.

The scientists fabricated blood and saliva samples containing DNA from a person other than the donor of the blood and saliva. They also showed that if they had access to a DNA profile in a database, they could construct a sample of DNA to match that profile without obtaining any tissue from that person.

“You can just engineer a crime scene,” said Dan Frumkin, lead author of the paper, which has been published online by the journal Forensic Science International: Genetics. “Any biology undergraduate could perform this" »

Motivo para hesitações? Pelo contrário, agora é que a prova de ADN vai entrar na berra. Quanto mais não seja, a bem das estatísticas e das premências eleitorais.
