Can your DNA help decode Australia’s 750 unidentified human remains?

Liberty Victoria president Michael Stanton said the country was facing a new frontier in the collection and use of DNA and warned people to approach with caution.

He said the increasing use of this technology should also give rise to questions about how this information could be used intergenerationally.

“It’s important people are conscious of the fact that it is possible in the future that this sort of information could be used for the investigation of not just missing persons, but also criminal offences,” Stanton said."
