“DNA Verdict” – criminological workshop with the ADAMED SmartUP Academy

27 March 2017

ADAMED SmartUP Academy’s criminological class “DNA Verdict” took place on 17th March. The workshop, which was co-organised with the Centre for Innovative Bioscience Education, were a unique chance for pupils to widen their theoretical knowledge and conduct a simulated multi-thread investigation.

The basis of the class was a fictional crime, during which the perpetrator “left” samples of his own DNA on site. The workshop participants were supposed to narrow down the number of suspects and finally identify the potentially guilty party, using forensic examination techniques. In order to do this, participants learned the basics of enzymatic DNA processing, and later they performed the RFLP procedure by themselves. An important part of the workshops was the story line, which required using deduction, stating hypotheses, and using logical arguments in order to eliminate false leads in the “investigation”
