The heart of this piece focuses on a researcher who is working to improve the reliability of DNA profiling for crime scenes, and throughout the article, she calls into question the many factors that may cause incorrect profiling - leading to the grim possibility an innocent person could be convicted.

Even minor movements by the user (either phone tilts or mouse movements) disturb the scene; it is deliberately delicate.
