Abstract

Forensic science currently faces a variety of challenges. Statistically suitable reference databases need to be developed and maintained. Subjective methods that can introduce bias need to be replaced by objective methods. Highly technical forensic methods need to be clearly and accurately communicated to juries. Juries should also be given information about the strength of the forensic evidence.
