Caption: Conceptual representation of a fingerprint being scanned for identification purposes. Fingerprints are unique to an individual, even identical twins do not share the pattern. This makes them very useful, particularly in forensic science and security. Computer databases of fingerprints are held by police forces, and quick scans can be used to open personalised locks.
