Challenges and solutions in DNA fingerprinting: Sample quality, data analysis, and interpretation

Author(s): Dr. Pratibha Tiwari
Abstract: DNA fingerprinting, a pivotal tool in forensic science, paternity testing, and genetic research, faces significant challenges in sample quality, data analysis, and interpretation. This article delves into these challenges, highlighting issues like sample contamination, DNA degradation, and the complexities of mixed DNA samples. It also explores the limitations in data analysis, arising from the intricacy of genetic data and the constraints of current analytical software. Additionally, the paper discusses interpretation challenges, including ethical concerns, privacy issues, and the potential for misinterpretation of results. To address these issues, the article presents various solutions such as advanced techniques for DNA collection and recovery, developments in software for more precise data analysis, and the implementation of standardized protocols for interpretation. Furthermore, the role of automation in enhancing accuracy and the importance of professional training are discussed. By examining both the challenges and the solutions in DNA fingerprinting, provides a comprehensive overview of the current state of the field and its future prospects and provides a succinct summary of the article, outlining both the problems and the solutions in the field of DNA fingerprinting.
