Attend

Discover the newest advances in DNA forensics from top experts in the field.

Do you ever feel like you or your lab are the only ones struggling with certain questions? Maybe it’s how to implement probabilistic genotyping, or maybe you would like to feel more confident when testifying. Are you nervous that massively parallel sequencing will become more mainstream, and that you won’t be ready?

Imagine attending the largest annual meeting focusing entirely on DNA forensics. You’ll have the opportunity to connect with industry leaders, exhibitors in the field, and other attendees just like you. You’ll discover that you’re not alone and will have a renewed passion for your work and solutions to everyday challenges you experience. It all happens virtually, starting September 14, 2020!

FULL AND HALF-DAY WORKSHOPS

For more in-depth training, a selection of full and half-day workshops will be held by experts in the field. Workshops will be presented live, allowing for interaction with the presenters, and will be available on-demand for those in differing time-zones. Workshop topics include implementation of Rapid DNA, testifying on probabilistic genotyping, validation principals, forensic genealogy, and building the forensic genetics of the next decade (presented entirely in Spanish).

"ISHI is one of the premier meetings that focuses on forensic genetics. One has an opportunity to see what work is being done now and what is in the future. Most importantly it is the best meeting for getting with colleagues who share a common interest (which in turn means more exchange and a better learning experience)."Bruce Budowle // University of North Texas Health Science Center
