Forensics - Forensics is the application of science in a legal setting. An example of modern forensics evidence is the use of DNA fingerprints. Sources of DNA include blood, hair, semen, saliva, bone and tissue.  An important aspect of modern forensics is the use of DNA profiling, or genetic finger printing.

Xenotransplantation entails transplanting cells or organs (for example pancreatic cells, a heart or a kidney) from an individual of one species into an individual of another species. Xenotransplantation has been proposed as a possible solution to the problem of the shortage of human organs for transplantation. START A DISCUSSION: should xenotransplantation be used to solve the organ shortfall?
