Abstract

In 1987 a DNA working group of three german forensic science laboratories was founded in order to establish the DNA analysis in routine case work. The members of this group came from the state labs of Berlin, of Baden-Württemberg, Stuttgart, and the federal lab (BKA) in Wiesbaden. In october 1989 these three laboratories started to use DNA analysis in case work. Scientists of other german state labs (table 1) started DNA profiling in 1990 or at the beginning of 1991 after having been trained by members of the working group. The results of DNA analysis in this paper are based on the work of six forensic science labs in Germany.
