The CSI effect

A recent article talked about the "CSI effect" and how it has had a negative effect on some jury members, because many people feel that the technology used on CSI already exists.

Today I play devils advocate :)

In relation to some of the "tests" they do, do you feel that this fictional or nearly fictional display of technology is good for the innovation in the areas of DNA analysis, testing, etc?

What are your other thoughts on the topic in general?


I created this blog to allow people to discuss many of the broader issues in the Biotechnology field. Whether your cup of tea is DNA, bio informatics, biology or just a jack of all trades feel free to contribute anything you think the group would find interesting.
