      Well versed in the handling of  all the equipments and technology of DNA

 

4. Significant forensic contributions  

1. State FSL of MP has the oldest and developed scene of crime mobile setup in the country.  Also we have the experienced experts to impart training in all the areas of scene of crime investigation . In 2005 the i have  tried to impart the valuable experience of our officer’s to train the officer’s posted in other state FSL’s. And the effort was widely appreciated which is evidenced by the Feedback we got. Same effort was done in 2006 and was not only appreciated by the trainees (source is their feed back) but also appreciated by the observer from DFS Director CFSL, Hyderabad.

After having initiated the DNA fingerprinting setup under Police Modernization Scheme I was among the team of four Scientist’s who after MOU and training from CDFD, Hyderabad not only established DNA facility in MP but initiated examination of all types of cases in the very first year ie in 2007.

 

2. Successfully taken part and passed two International Quality Control (QC) test for DNA Fingerprinting examination organised by the following International Quality Control  bodies.

     1. Institute of Legal Medicine and Forensic Sciences,   Charité – University    

         Medicine Berlin Hannoversche Strasse 6,D-10115 Berlin, Germany

     2.Director - GENYO  (Pfizer - University of Granada & Andalusian Govt.  

        Center for  Genomics & Oncology), Director - Lab. of  Genetic Identification –   

        UGR, Dept. of  Legal Medicine, University of Granada, Spain.

    

  1. labs engaged in DNA analysis and found the feed back that isolation of DNA from bone is very difficult and it’s a chance that you get profile from a bone. I worked on to this problem and successfully solved the issue and till date in more than 400  DNA cases reported from this lab, not only the cases reported by nominee but in the cases reported by all the working scientist’s using the same modified protocol we have 100 % success in isolation of DNA from Bone (The results and protocol was presented for the benefit of DNA scientist’s working in other labs of country in All India Forensic Conference).  
  1. M. Phil. Desertation Supervised- “Design and Synthesis of Oligonucleotides for Human Genetic Profiling”  Mr. D.S.Negi of Centre for DNA Fingerprinting and Diagonistics  (CDFD), Hyderabad submitted the work to the Faculty of Science, Madurai Kamaraj University (2008).
