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.


Dr. Grgicak Speaks to SFI Centre for Research Training in Foundations of Data Science about Forensic DNA & the PROVEDIt Database

Dr. Grgicak introduces forensic DNA data and the forensically relevant PROVEDIt DNA database to data researchers at Ireland’s SFI Centre for Research Training in Foundations of Data Science


LFTDI M.S. Students Present Their Thesis Research

OPEN FORUM: SCI 114 (Chemistry Conference Room). On Thursday April 25th at 3pm, come see Amanda present her work on: DEVELOPING A FORENSICALLY RELEVANT SINGLE-CELL INTERPRETATION STRATEGY FOR HUMAN IDENTIFICATION. In this work Amanda demonstrates that single-cell signal is fundamentally different than signal acquired from bulk-processing, signifying new interpretation constructs are needed for forensically relevant …
