DNA Evidence can be faked

Neuberger & Partners is quoted in Law Times article by Robert Todd August 24, 2009 about Forensic DNA Evidence.

"Neuberger & Partners LLP, who has written a book on DNA evidence, says the test offered by Nucleix is important, and labs should use it.

But he says he doesn't believe the finding raises the spectre of wrongful convictions. Contrary to claims from Nucleix, Neuberger & Partners says the scenario proposed by the company would require extremely sophisticated equipment and a "very talented" scientist.

"What it probably implies is that as the technology to replicate DNA becomes more readily accessible, then the idea that your DNA can be in a variety of locations is going to become more commonly accepted," he says.
Neuberger & Partners suggests there are much easier ways to frame someone using DNA than the technique outlined by the Nucleix study.

"It's a lot easier for someone to follow you around, grab a Coke can you've had, perform a bank robbery, and leave the can of Coke at the crime scene. Bingo, your DNA's at the crime scene."
