Alexander Gray (Lead / Corresponding author)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The purpose of this article is to give a brief overview of the current state of nanopore sequencing in relation to forensic science with a brief outline of where it stands in relation to current methods, its potential uses in forensic science and factors which may influence acceptance of this technology by forensic practitioners, the judiciary and law enforcement. Perhaps most importantly consideration is also given to concerns which may influence the acceptance of the technology by the general public.
