Andhra Pradesh police launches pilot project on DNA profiling
22 August 2016 Current Affairs GK: Andhra Pradesh Police has launched DNA Index System (DIS), the first-of-its-kind initiative that allows generation of DNA profiles from live samples like saliva and blood stains.

The system uses the latest DNA technology tool called RapidHIT developed by IntegenX of USA. The DIS allows generation of DNA profiles using buccal swabs, blood stains, saliva and other live samples in less than two hours. 

Generation of a DNA profile takes two or more days with the technologies so far available. The AP Police launched a pilot, to test the efficacy of the DIS, to generate DNA profiles of a batch of convicts and suspects involved in various crimes.

DNA profiling plays a crucial role in solving crimes and also has the potential to link a series of crimes by placing the suspects by linking them with the crime scene.

 It could  also help the suspects prove their innocence,” the release added. “Our aim is to make AP a crime-free state and the DIS is a proactive policing measure using the latest technology in forensic labs.
