Identification of Hairs for DNA
The OSBI Forensic Biology Unit analyzes evidence differentiated into the following categories:
Major crimes consist of violent crimes such as assaults, sexual assaults, criminal paternity cases, and homicides.
Property crimes consist of crimes that are non-violent such as burglaries and auto-theft.
Cold cases are cases in which all reasonable leads have been exhausted.
Combined DNA Index System (CODIS)
The Forensic Biology Unit works in conjunction with the Combined DNA Index System (CODIS) Unit to enter appropriate evidentiary samples into the National DNA Index System (NDIS).
The CODIS Unit also processes convicted offender samples from the State of Oklahoma for entry into the national database.
