Engineers have demonstrated a method for ensuring that an increasingly popular method of genetic identification called “DNA fingerprinting” remains secure against inadvertent mistakes or malicious attacks in the field. The technique relies on introducing genetic “barcodes” to DNA samples as they are collected and securely sending information crucial to identifying these barcodes to technicians in the laboratory.
