Travis sits down with Kevin Lord, Director of Lab and Agency Logistics with the DNA Doe Project. Though he has experience in all facets of utilizing investigative genetic genealogy to solve law enforcement cases, in his current role, he works with agencies to determine the best way to approach each case, and shepherds each precious sample through the lab pipeline with the goal of getting the best results possible. Additionally, he performs the complex bioinformatics work that can often make or break a case when it comes to working with difficult samples.
