On the 5th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, the National Institute of Justice – the research, development, and evaluation agency of the U.S. Department of Justice – published a major report on the identification of mass disaster victims using DNA analysis. The report was prepared by the Kinship and Data Analysis Panel, a multidisciplinary group of scientists assembled by the National Institute of Justice to offer guidance to the New York City Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in the identification of those who perished in the World Trade Center.
