Significant progress has been made in the study of genetic factors in human blood in the last fifteen years. Current technology uses a wide range of hereditary antigenes and polymorphic protein markers, a considerable number of which can be found in liquid blood. Some of these polymorphs have been used in the fight against crime, with the result that the judicial authorities now have increasingly reliable forms of identification, particularly when investigating violent crimes and sexual assaults. © 1988.
