When you review the history of forensics, you see that there are varying timelines. The history, as complied by the American College of Forensic Examiners, began as early as the 4,000 BC. The modern association of forensic biology has been developed into many subdivisions such as toxicology, pathology, anthropology, and odontology, just to name a few. • In 4–6 paragraphs, address the following: o In your own words, what is the definition of forensic biology? Explain. o Which of the major subfields do you feel is the most important to forensic biology? Explain.  Examples can include serology, entomology, odontology, etc. o If you must select 1, which of the following developmental stages of forensic biology do you feel is the most important to the field? Explain why.  Antigen polymorphism  Protein polymorphism  DNA polymorphism o How might each of the above be used in

CRJS478 DB1NameClassDateProfessorForensic Biology Forensic biology is the study of biology through a criminal justice process. Biology is a branch of science that when applied to functions in the criminal justice system become forensic biology. Forensic biology applies biology to the study of body fluids, insects, and bones. Most forensic biological evidence is collected through scientific processes developed to solve crimes. Biological evidence can be tied directly back to a criminal suspect, a victim, or to evidence at a crime scene. Biological evidence with DNA can be traced and directly linked to a specific person making it crucial to solving a crime. The subfields of forensic biology are serology, entomology, and odontology. Serology is the study of body fluids. Body fluids blood, salvia, seat, etc are examined in order to identify specific markers or DNA profiles. Serology is the study and examination of bodily fluids that is used in forensic science as a means of segregating fluids excreted by assailants or attackers in varying criminal acts (Claridge, 2013). Entomology is the study of insects. The stages of development of the insect will
