NIJ FY06 Forensic DNA Research and Development: The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) seeks proposals for research and development to enhance the forensic uses of DNA technology. This solicitation focuses on technologies that result in faster, more robust, more informative, less costly, or less labor-intensive identification, collection, preservation, and/or analysis of DNA evidence collected from crime scenes. Priority will be given to proposals focusing on the following: 1. Software tools for mixture interpretation of DNA data from casework samples. 2. Physical separation of the components of a mixture. 3. Automated sperm searches. 4. Body fluid/cell type identification. 5. Preliminary genetic determination of probative evidentiary samples. 6. Identification and/or characterization of genetic marker systems that have the potential to reveal additional or more powerful information about the source of the biological evidence. 7. Improved tools for examining aged, degraded, limited, damaged, or otherwise compromised DNA evidence.
