BioFutures: Mandatory Genetic Fingerprinting - CANCELED

If someone is arrested for a federal crime, law enforcement officials are allowed to take a sample of their DNA. And last fall, the Justice Department approved the collection of DNA from the tens of thousands of people detained in immigration detention centers. UC Berkeley Law professor Andrea Roth will explore the privacy implications of expanding our federal DNA database. Could DNA fingerprinting be extended even further? What can go wrong when DNA is collected from immigrant families? How might a government DNA database be abused?

Speaker: Andrea Roth, UC Berkeley
