Abstract:  Forensic Touch DNA is the transfer of DNA bearing biological materials via the hands to substrates associated with the commission of a crime.  Development of a DNA profile from biological material provides associations that provide valuable investigative leads to help solve crimes.  A case scenario will be presented to highlight the use and issues with touch DNA.  Touch DNA forensic applications, theory of transfer and limitations will be discussed, including research collaborations currently ongoing with University of Illinois at Chicago Dr. Ashley Hall and her students.  Potential for forensic research in a number of other forensic applications will also be presented.
