Forensic Biology

Are you fascinated by the process of conducting DNA analysis to investigate the scene of a crime? Forensic biology is a specialist discipline within the forensic sciences that focuses on evidence of a biological nature.

They also work with other forensic scientists to investigate crimes against individuals and natural disasters.
