Forensic Science Research Starter
Forensic science is commonly defined as the application of science to legal matters. Although forensic science incorporates numerous disciplines, ranging from accounting to psychology, in the traditional sense, forensic science refers to the scientific analysis of evidence collected at crime scenes, which is also known as “criminalistics.” Pattern evidence (such as fingerprints, bullets, and tool marks) is often compared visually, and chemical evidence (such as illicit drugs) and biological evidence (such as DNA, blood, and bodily fluids) are analyzed and compared using scientific instruments.
