Debates on Forensic DNA Phenotyping (FDP) have intensified in Germany since recently. Experts, practitioners, politicians and the public are divided upon the questions whether, when, in which cases, and under what conditions these new technologies could and should be applied (or not). Proponents often point to their successful implementation in the Netherlands and in the UK, without mentioning details about how and in what frameworks the techniques are being used in these countries.
What might be gained by taking a closer look at the situations in these two countries? Under what circumstances does it make sense to apply FDP? Denise Syndercombe-Court provides first-hand insights into the practises, complexities and regulatory issues of FDP. She draws on her vast and detailed experiences gained by her research, her reporting on cases, and her memberships in numerous institutions and state bodies dealing with forensic DNA analyses.
