Activity description:

Could it be a case of mistaken identity? Fingerprints are unique to each individual, like DNA, but similarities do occur. How do you differentiate between two closely-related fingerprints? This is where fingerprint minutiae enter the conversation. Join DNALC instructor Brittany for this DNALC Live Short to learn about different fingerprint minutiae, identify your own, and then do a fun finger painting activity using your fingerprints.
