The DNA as an ID card. Lesson in Genetics

Pavel Lízal

The fourth volume of the popular science “Munice” series is focused on the information potential of deoxyribonucleic acid, the carrier of hereditary information. How can DNA analysis help in searching for perpetrators of criminal acts, victims of disasters, lost family members or bygone ancestors?

He is interested in e-learning and experiments with the use of mobile devices (tablets, mobile phones, smart watches) in teaching. He also organizes popularization lectures on genetics for high schools and the public.
