LIFS students in second, third and fourth grade participated in a lecture hosted by Hallym University Graduate School of Information and Law.
The lecture was led by Karlep Liisi, a researcher from the Institute of Information Science and Law, Tallinn University, Estonia.
Students learned about DNA detection in the field of Information Forensics. The contents of the lecture broadened the field of DNA detection through the history, basic concepts, procedures, and examples of DNA identification, a key part of the investigation.
Case studies helped students to understand the processes involved; a memorable example were the words of those who pretended to be a princess by analyzing the DNA of Princess Anastasia, with the remains of the royal family, who were killed during the Russian Revolution.
This lecture gave students a good understanding of DNA testing and how it can complement modern science investigations.
