Dennis McNevin is Professor of Forensic Genetics in the Centre for Forensic Science at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS). His research is focussed on the prediction of phenotype from genotype, including biogeographical ancestry (BGA), and the use of new DNA sequencing technologies for forensic purposes. He has also developed methods for extracting and preserving DNA. He has established a genetic ancestry laboratory for provision of forensic DNA intelligence services to forensic investigators.
Science and technology is as much a part of our cultural fabric as art, music, theatre and literature. They play a significant role in our daily lives, yet, in a world dependent on science, we often take them for granted. Australia’s Science Channel believes every citizen has a right, and a responsibility, to be informed, and our mission is to create programs to bring that about.
