A forensic technique used to find individuals by characteristics of their DNA is known as DNA profiling. A DNA profile is a small set of DNA variations. It is very different in all unrelated individuals making it unique as fingerprints. DNA profiling is not genome sequencing.
Discrimination of one being to another with the help of hypervariable minisatellite deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is forensic DNA profiling. Using PCR, several DNA profiles have been created and stored in developed countries. These DNA profiles will be further used to compare evidences and prove crimes. Genetic engineering has a very good role in DNA profiling.
