In the current forensic framework, methods used to obtain information on the cellular origin of stains found on crime scene samples are mostly based on histological and immunological principles. These methods have limited sensitivity and are presumptive, which means that definitive statements on the biological origin cannot be given. Alexander Lindenbergh explores the use of mRNA profiling applications as tools for human body fluids and organ tissue identification of biological material found on crime scenes.
