Foresic science. Two scientific officers at work in a forensic science laboratory. At left, the scientist is preparing a detailed record of marks on a training shoe. These include patches of wear and damage, dirt and possible blood spots. In the background, the second scientist is taking various samples from a pair of jeans. Analysis of soil types and similar substances can help trace the movements of a victim or suspect, whilst DNA samples from blood or other body cells can provide evidence of association between the two. Photographed at the Home Office Forensic Science Service, Aldermaston, UK. Scientists are S.Payne (left) and T.Makinson.
