The term DNA fingerprinting can also be called DNA profiling or genetic fingerprinting. DNA fingerprinting is a process used to identify unique qualities of your DNA. It is called DNA fingerprinting because these unique qualities of your DNA are just as unique and specific to you as your own...Read More

DNA profiling and gel electrophoresis are actually very different things. DNA profiling is where scientists can take your DNA from either blood, sweat, saliva, other bodily fluids or hair and use it to either compare your DNA with someone else's, to study diseases or to even convict you of a...Read More
