1. True or False? You can alter your DNA so it will appear to be different.
2. What was one of the problems during early blood tests? (Around 1875)
A. Microscopic examination could not be applied to dried blood
B. Human blood could not be distinguished from animal blood
C. Blood types could not be identified
D. All of these
3. What system used by the FBI compiles DNA of known violent offenders from
all over the nation and can be used to match DNA with a sample found at a
crime scene?
A. AFIS B. DNAW C. CODIS
D. CDDB
4. A woman gets out of bed, watches TV, talks on the phone, pets her cat, and
then shoots her husband. She hides the gun and runs away. Which object would
be most useful to the forensic serologist in finding out who the woman was?
A. The TV B. The cat C. The phone D. The TV remote
5. True or False? Your blood type appears only in your blood.
1. False - You can alter your DNA so it will appear to be different.
2. What was one of the problems during early blood tests? D. All of these
3. What system used by the FBI compiles DNA of known violent offenders from all over the nation and
can be used to match DNA with a sample found at a crime scene?
C. CODIS- The Combined DNA Index System (CODIS) has blood samples of offenders
and has solved many cases. CODIS solved a 1993 sexual assault case by linking that
suspect to a 1991 rape case.
4. A woman gets out of bed, watches TV, talks on the phone, pets her cat, and then shoots her
husband. She hides the gun and runs away. Which object would be most useful to the forensic
serologist in finding out who the woman was?
C. The phone
All of these things would help find out who the woman is, but to the forensic serologist, the phone would be the
most handy. When you talk on the phone, little bits of saliva go onto the phone when you talk. White blood
cells are found in saliva so the woman's DNA would be on the phone.
5. False - Your blood type appears only in your blood.
Your blood type appears in bodily fluids other than your blood a lot of the time. About 80% of the population's
blood type appears in more than one of their other fluids.
