As a criminal defense attorney, there's a lot of takeaways from the DNA information presented here. I thought it was a great course to lay the foundation for future learning on the subject.

Great presentation!

It was a fascinating presentation, however, I clearly should have done some research to improve my knowledge base beforehand. That being said, I feel like I at least know how to begin to deal with DNA evidence.

Good presentation on basics.
