New uses for DNA fingerprinting, Alec Jeffreys
Interviewee: Alec Jeffreys. New uses for DNA fingerprinting.
So we all got together and we started all literally drawing up a list of things that this could be used for, very, very exciting. And I think the, I mean within days, I mean we had people running around, you know, forensics, okay, well let's go and prick our finger and, and leave a spot of blood in the lab somewhere. And then we'll go and scrape it up later and see if we can get the DNA out. I mean this was really, really, really bad science, but it was, it was enormous fun.
