MANAGER'S BACKGROUND
Background
The Miami-Dade Police Department, Forensic Services Bureau, Crime Laboratory routinely analyzes DNA as one of its responsibilities. Considerable equipment is used in carrying out these analyses. The genetic analyzers to be donated are an average of 13 years old and are costly to service and maintain.

The Florida International University has a forensic science program which could use the equipment to train students on industry standard equipment. These instruments will support undergraduate and graduate research in forensic science. This equipment would be used to support the training effort in a forensic biology laboratory class and also a summer workshop on DNA instrumentation and analyses.
