November 22, 2019

HOUSTON, Nov. 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Gene By Gene is playing a crucial role in helping law enforcement solve cold cases. According to Dr. Barbara Rae-Venter, Director of Gene By Gene’s Investigative Genetic Genealogy Unit and pioneer of the game-changing approach, who has solved more than twenty-five cases, including the Golden State Killer, “Gene By Gene’s laboratory and matching DNA database have helped solve three high-profile cases in the past month.”

Dr. Connie Bormans, Director of Gene By Gene’s highly accredited laboratory, which processes DNA samples from crime scenes, with oversight of law enforcement registration and uploading of crime scene DNA into the company’s FamilyTreeDNA database, says, “Finally, after years of waiting, victims and their families are getting long-awaited and much-deserved closure. As more agencies adopt the use of investigative genetic genealogy, we expect more headlines like these cold cases and anticipate a future where crimes of murder, sexual assault, and kidnapping are solved in real-time.”
