The Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff's Station would like to advise the public of a website which is designed to give an overview of DNA analysis for friends and family of missing persons.

If you are interested in the process that forensic scientists go through to identify human remains or what DNA can and cannot do, then visit National Criminal Justice Reference Service.

The website also describes the source of DNA that forensic scientists might use, and explains the difference between nuclear and mitochondrial DNA.

If you have any questions regarding this information, please contact Sergeant Phil Morris at (818) 878-1808, x3082.
