Welcome to the Laboratory for Forensic Technology Development & Integration

Innovating methods to simplify the interpretation of low-level signal obtained from complex environments

We are developing methods for rapid and automated identification of individuals using Massive Parallel Sequencing (MPS), Probabilistic Genotyping, Capillary Electrophoresis (CE) and Single-Cell analysis. By applying sound bio-analytical and statistical principles, we are optimizing signal acquired within the single-molecule regime and engineering computational tools that can appropriately interpret these signals.


LFTDI Awarded NIST Grant to Develop In Silico MPS Forensic Laboratory

Dr. Grgicak was awarded a two-year grant from the NIST Measurement Science & Engineering Grant Program to develop an in silico NGS forensic laboratory. The goal is to develop an in silico forensic laboratory using forensically relevant next-generation sequencing data in order to test multifarious laboratory scenarios and optimize processing decisions, improving forensic validation procedures. …
