Every forensic genome will have different DNA profiling so by the forensic DNA analysis it can identify individuals by characteristics of their DNA.  A DNA profile is a small set of DNA variations that are very likely to be different in all unrelated individuals, thereby being unique to individuals as are fingerprints. The first method for finding out forensic genetics is use of DNA profiling involving RFLP analysis.

Psychological evaluations, including psychological testing, are often requested in legal cases, custody decisions, guardianship and competency decisions, or any time there is uncertainty about what is troubling an individual, or when information is required about a person's psychological make-up. Psychological tests can include assessments of personality styles, tests of emotional well-being, intellectual (or "IQ") tests, tests of academic achievement, tests for possible brain damage, and tests for specific psychological disturbances and their severity.
