DNA and genetic engineering will play an increasing role in the field of justice, investigation and forensic science. However, genetics-related technologies are largely overrated, as is the reliability of the results, which are known to be exposed to the risk of human error. More importantly, recent technological innovations and their future evolutions may conceal dangerous threats to the search for truth. Anyone who wants to work in the field of forensic science must necessarily be familiar with genetics and how technologies related to DNA work.
No, the course has lifetime access.
Of course, once you have finished the course, you can download the School of Disruption certification, recognized by the Swiss Institute for Disruptive Innovation. The certificate can be attached to your CV or registered on LinkedIn.
