There are three possible results: Sometimes, investigators have DNA evidence but no suspects.

In that case, law enforcement officials can compare crime scene DNA to profiles stored in a database.

To identify the owner of a DNA sample, the DNA "fingerprint," or profile, must be matched, either to DNA from a suspect or to a DNA profile stored in a database.

Let's consider the former situation -- when a suspect is present.

They devote large resources to suppressing random genetic variation and have the capacity to set the level of background localized mutability by adjusting the activity of their repair systems. It works by flipping a positively charged damaged base—highly unstable—and the one it’s paired with, from the inside to the outside of the helix. Understanding these enzymes could lead to more effective chemotherapy.

For example, there is ‘base excision repair’: special enzymes called DNA glycosylases run down the DNA molecule, detect the damaged ‘letter’, grab it, put it in a specially shaped pocket, then chop it out. Evolution has a major problem in explaining repair machinery.

This haplogroup has been identified in the 24,000 year-old remains of the so-called "Mal'ta boy" from the Altai region, in south-central Siberia (Raghavan et al. This individual belonged to a tribe of mammoth hunters that may have roamed across Siberia and parts of Europe during the Paleolithic.The advantages were obvious, any defect in a persons DNA could be repaired.At the extreme end Dr Chamberlain hoped that the process could extend life, or at least remove the worst excesses of age, to help her Jim had been hired as an assistant six months ago. I'm almost finished here." "Thanks doctor, see ya tomorrow." Jim left the sterile area and went through decomtam.This changes the shape enough so it can no longer fit into the double helix.This can prevent DNA replication or reading the gene.The diversity can be explained by other factors though.
