Monday 2nd March
Our talk tonight was on DNA forensics and crime by Dr Rhian Morgan from Wales Gene Park. She explained about the discovery of DNA in 1984 and gave many interesting examples of how DNA has been used to prove guilt or innocence , including how DNA was used to prove that the SS Captain Josef Mengele – The Angel of Death escaped to Brazil at the end of World War 2. We all enjoyed the evening, which was interesting and informative.
