Semarang | Discussing about DNA or Deoxyribo Nucleic Acid becomes the main material in assisting law  enforcement agencies investigation. Profiling DNA using genetic molecular method to identify DNA sample phenotype to distinguish the DNA of one person to another so that it can assist the law enforcement agencies to any criminal investigation. For instance, finding for missing person, identifying victim of disaster, crime victim and paternity test.


“Criminal investigation frequently consists of biological evidence material such as blood, hair, saliva, and skin, sometimes can be extracted to get someone’s DNA.
