Crime Scene & Forensic Science
A miniscule flake of paint, data from a mobile phone or DNA taken from droplets of blood can trap a murderer. How do you extract vital evidence from a crime scene or digital device? How do you present it as an exhibit in court? How do you use scientific theory to back up your findings?
