Forensic Genomics Innovation Hub
The Forensic Genomics Innovation Hub focuses on using next generation sequencing technology for specilaised forensic casework, mitochondrial genomics, private DNA testing and human identification as well as availing the technology to research and academia.
The Forensic Genomics Innovation Hub aims to transform the use of DNA in forensic science with the provision of next generation sequencing technology, already well respected in the clinical genetics, to researchers, academia and the criminal justice system. A “proof of concept / centre of excellence” facility where projects and mutually beneficial partnerships produce foundational research that will lead to innovations and deployable solutions in the future. Being innovative, the Forensic Genomics Innovation Hub is both creative and adaptable, with a willingness to develop new ideas and provide both winning solutions and positive outcomes. No longer will DNA be an adjunct to crime-fighting but a proactive intelligence tool.
