Reston, Va. (April 2018) – Parabon® NanoLabs, a vertically integrated DNA technology company that develops next-gen forensic and therapeutic products,
will be speaking about the use and benefits of the Parabon Snapshot® DNA Phenotyping Service at the 2018 Annual Tarrant County Sexual Abuse Advisory Council (TCSAAC) Conference, to be held in Forth Worth, TX, April 6, 2018.
Mrs. Echols will discuss Snapshot, a revolutionary new forensic DNA analysis service that accurately predicts the physical appearance and ancestry of an unknown person from DNA. It can also determine kinship between DNA samples out to six degrees of relatedness. She will discuss how the service can aid in generating investigative leads, narrowing suspect lists and identifying unknown remains, and review actual cases where Snapshot has provided useful information to investigators.
