DNA Database


The FDLE DNA Investigative Support Database was created by F.S. 943.325. This statewide database receives DNA samples from individuals arrested or convicted of any felony offense or convicted of certain misdemeanor offenses. The analysis results allow for the comparison of DNA from unresolved cases to the DNA of both known offenders and that from other unresolved cases in an attempt to identify the perpetrator. Questions and Answers specific to the DNA Database (CODIS) are found under the Biology Q & A.
