Abstract

Disaster victim identification is very important for legal, administration, and humanity reasons. Disasters include airplane crashes, fire disasters, volcanoes, hurricane, tornadoes, wars and flood. Methods of identification include visual identification, fingerprints, DNA analysis, personal objects and odontology. DNA analysis is an important method of disaster victim identification particularly when other methods of identification are not possible or not conclusive. The current article enumerates and reviews the role played by DNA analysis in identifying mass disaster victims.
