Caption: Forensic blood sampling. Forensic scientists preparing articles for blood sampling during criminal investigations. Blood-stained clothing (jeans, a t-shirt and a shoe) and an axe are seen. DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) may be isolated from a blood sample and sequenced, providing a DNA fingerprint. This may then be compared with DNA from the victim and any suspects. In some cases, this may be used in conjunction with other evidence to positively link a suspect with both the victim and the scene of a crime. Modern amplification techniques allow DNA sequences to be taken from extremely small samples, such as a few spots of blood or a few hair follicles.
