Microbial Forensics is a rapidly evolving scientific discipline.
In the last decade, and particularly due to the anthrax letter
attacks in the United States, microbial forensics has become more
formalized and has played an increasingly greater role in crime
investigations. This has brought renewed interest, development and
application of new technologies, and new rules of forensic and
policy engagement. It has many applications ranging from
biodefense, criminal investigations, providing intelligence
information, making society more secure, and helping protect
precious resources, particularly human life. A combination of
diverse areas is investigated, including the major disciplines of
biology, microbiology, medicine, chemistry, physics, statistics,
population genetics, and computer science.
"Microbial Forensics 2nd Edition" is fully revised and updated
and serves as a complete reference of the discipline. It describes
the advances, as well as the challenges and opportunities ahead,
and will be integral in applying science to help solve future
A collection of microbiology, virology, toxicology and mycology as
it relates to forensics, in one reference.
New and expanded content to include statistical analysis of
forensic data and legal admissibility and the standards of
evidence, to name a few.
Includes research information, and application of that research,
to crime scene analysis which will allow practitioners to
understand and apply the knowledge to their practice with ease.
