The Forensic Use of Bioinformation
The Nuffield Council on Bioethics has developed a set of teaching resources based on its 2007 report The forensic use of bioinformation: ethical issues. These include teachers' background information as well as a set of activities.
There are three activities to teach students to think about how fingerprints and DNA profiles are used to investigate crime and the ethical issues that arise from the storage of bioinformation on national databases.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
