DNA and Protein Forensics
Generally, looking at some of the milestones that have been achieved over the past few decades in the past century, one of these that may be well considered and rightly so as the greatest and most significant is the discovery of DNA, an understanding of its structure and how it works. By and large, this is one of the discoveries that has had such a resounding impact on the fields of science and medical research and progress and much strides have been seen in these areas all thanks to the discovery of DNA. These have been seen in things such as the identification of our genes that may be behind the outbreak of some of the diseases and as well on the pharmaceutical field where we see it helping with the need to create some of the drugs that treat some of the life threatening ailments. As a matter of fact, the discovery of DNA and the benefits that this has had on human life and experience is one thing that is still being felt to date and will continue to be felt and realized in a number of ways into the future. The following is a rundown on some of the benefits of the discovery of DNA and protein forensics.
Talking of some of the areas that have so benefited from the discovery of DNA, one that has had a sure share of benefit has been the need to settle paternity issues and its legal impact. It is a rather common thing that we all seem to know of that the issues of paternity have had so much impact on families and children all round the world. In order to accurately determine the paternity of a child, as innocent as they happen to be in so far as their existence down here happens to be, can be identified and responsibility placed where it should be which happens to be benefit the affected child for the rest of their lives as a matter of fact.
Moreover, forensics has as well been benefited with the discovery of DNA. Indeed, the area of forensic science is another of the areas and professions that has indeed benefited immensely from the discovery of DNA. This is looking at the fact that thanks to DNA analyses the need to determine the actual culprit or suspect with the highest odds of being involved in some criminal act such as murder has been made easier which makes the forensics department be a lot more effective in ensuring that justice is served and culpability falls on the right persons. Ideally, there are a number of ways that DNA and protein analyses have actually proved to revolutionize the field of forensic science.
