In 2016, the leadership of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia decided to organize a DNA analysis laboratory on the basis of the Forensic Center of the MIA for the Republic of Tyva. This will significantly increase the number of examinations and improve the effectiveness of crime solving.
The laboratory is equipped with the latest equipment, which makes it possible to conduct DNA research, which is one of the most reliable ways of identifying a person. Thus, DNA analysis is used to identify individuals who have left biological traces on the scene, to attribute traces from several crimes to the same person(s), to establish kinship and much more. Experts of the Forensic Science Center of the Ministry of Internal Affairs for the Republic of Tyva who have been trained in various types of expert examinations will be able to perform the identification of a person with high accuracy and maximum efficiency. Any, even the smallest and invisible part of the traces of biological origin – blood, saliva, sweat, and so on – will allow experts to determine the person they belong to. This is especially important because of the need to study the ever increasing volume of biological traces seized from crime scenes.
Previously similar studies were conducted in Krasnoyarsk and Abakan.
