LFTDI

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 optimize signal acquired within the single-molecule regime and engineer computational systems that appropriately interpret these signals.

NIJ and Rutgers Success Story Featured by FTCoE

Forensic Technology Center of Excellence publishes the NIJ success story on LFTDI’s NOCIt platform – a method to infer the number of contributors to a forensic sample found at a crime scene.

LFTDI student and CIB PhD Candidate Nidhi Sheth awarded NIJ Graduate Fellowship

LFTDI student and CIB PhD Candidate, Nidhi Sheth, was awarded an NIJ Graduate Fellowship for her work  on “Selectively analyzing and interpreting DNA from multiple donors with a full Single-Cell strategy“. Nidhi is part of a multi-institutional, inter-disciplinary team of computer scientists, applied mathematicians, data scientists and chemists interested in developing a forensically relevant single-cell …
