"It's improbable that any DNA would remain on a weapon left outside for 16 years," said Joseph Galdi, chief of the Suffolk Crime Lab's biological sciences section.


Newsday.com - New DNA Tests Helped

We're constantly amazed by what we can get DNA off of , said Joseph Galdi , supervisor of the Suffolk Crime Lab's biological sciences division.Scientists recently swabbed the inside of a glove left at the scene of a burglary and were able to get a full DNA profile , Galdi said.And in the case of Kristin Scarabelli , authorities say the new DNA testing method linked next-door neighbor Stephen Manolis to an object found on her front lawn , where police say she was killed.DNA tests available when she was killed five years ago could not have revealed the same information , forensic scientists said.Crime scene investigators have relied on DNA evidence - sometimes called genetic fingerprinting - for more than a decade.The idea behind it is that DNA , the unique biological code found in the cells of every person , can be used to match blood stains , semen or saliva found at a scene or on evidence to a suspect or a victim.Until two years ago , forensic scientists used two kinds of DNA tests , each with its own trade-offs.Restriction fragment length polymorphism , or RFLP , testing offered accurate results , but it was time-consuming and required a relatively large stain - about the size of half a dime , Galdi said.The other method , polymerase chain reaction , or PCR , could be performed quickly on a much smaller sample but was less accurate.The new method , short tandem repeats , or STR , offers the best of both methods.It is accurate enough in many cases to make a virtual match between a DNA sample and a specific person , even while using a tiny piece of evidence.
