ForensisGroup DNA sequencing technology expert witnesses work in the areas of biotechnology, agriculture, and academia with this process of determining the precise order of nucleotides within a DNA molecule. This work includes any method or technology that is used to determine the order of the four bases in a strand of DNA —adenine, guanine, cytosine, and thymine.
Our DNA sequencing technology expert witnesses have many years of experience as engineers designing and developing products in this industry. This includes bio-informatics and product reverse engineering, developing DNA and protein sequence search algorithms and software used for this process, as well as knowledge of next-generation sequencing (NGS) platforms and their underlying sequencing methodology. Many have discovered and analyzed complex digital signal processing algorithms and pertinent operations within DNA sequencing products.
Their expert witness experience includes multiple patent litigation cases involving encryption and decryption methods associated with DNA sequencing technology.
They have experience in working with law firms in patent litigation cases and can assist with both patent invalidity and demonstrating non-infringement of the patents. They have drafted claim charts and analyzed opposing invalidity reports and provided rebuttals.
Our experts have advanced degrees in fields such as biology, bioengineering, genetics, biochemistry, biophysics, and chemical engineering.
We’ve been helping law firms and insurance companies, as well as other public and private agencies, discover credentialed and knowledgeable expert witnesses since 1991, locating experts in over 30,000 cases. Contact our staff today for additional information on retaining an authoritative DNA sequencing technology expert witness for your case.
I have worked for over 25 years in cell biology with a focus in human embryotic stem cells. My research focuses on developing hematopoietic (blood forming) stem cells that can differentiate into red cells, T cells, platelets, and all other cell types that comprise blood. My additional areas of research include Pluripotent stem cells, erythroid differentiation, red blood cells, epigenetics, DNA methylation, DNA replication, bioinformatics, allele-specific expression, gene therapy, hemoglobinopathies. I have prior experience providing my services as a hematology expert witness.
I have more than 30 years of experience in the field of Chemistry. My recent research areas include small molecule to perturb protein-protein interactions, small molecule for targeting cancer cells, and asymmetric hydrogenations of substrates without classical coordinating groups. My prior research has included through-bond energy transfer fluorescent dyes for multiplexing, BODIPY dye chemistry, combinatorial methods for catalyst discovery and optimization, delivery of proteins into cells, small molecule ligands for the Trk receptors (one compound in clinical trials), solid phase syntheses, dyes for DNA sequencing; as well as, DNA sequencing by synthesis, manganese catalyzed epoxidations using hydrogen peroxide, syntheses and applications of cyclopropene amino acids, catalyzed hydroborations, biocatalytic syntheses of useful chirons, and syntheses and reactions of chiral sulfoxides. I have over 10 years of expert witness experience with consultation, deposition, and courtroom testimony.
I have over 30 years experience in the design, implementation, and management of the development of a large variety of software applications, ranging from shrink-wrapped products for sale to customers, to tools used to create data or services sold to customers, to purely DARPA-funded research projects where the products were new algorithms and approaches to solve difficult problems. I have a broad range of high technological experience including bioinformatics, electronic design automation, digital cartography, banking systems for foreign exchange traders at large central banks, operating system conformance test suites, and prototyping new architectures for all optical networks in support of data intensive grid computing. My expertise includes XWindows, Motif, GUI’s (graphical user interfaces), graphics, algorithms, and relational databases in both Unix and Microsoft platforms. I have prior expert witness experience.
I have over 40 years experience in chemistry. My areas of expertise include chemical toxicology, chemical mutagenesis, chemical carcinogenesis, heavy metal toxicology and carcinogenesis, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon toxicology and carcinogenesis, asbestos and inorganic elements carcinogenesis, environmental carcinogenesis, environmental pollution and molecular biology of cancer, human carcinogenesis, human toxicology, and genetic toxicology. I have experience with cases involving asbestos-induced lung injury, heavy metal toxicity, and chemically-induced lung cancer. In addition to my consulting work in Chemical Toxicology and Chemical Carcinogenesis, I also serve as a consultant in the area of Intellectual Property. I consult on Intellectual property in the areas of Biology, including Medical Microbiology, and Chemistry. I have worked in the past on a case involving early detection of pathogenic bacteria in clinical samples. I have more than 30 years expert witness experience with consultations, deposition, and courtroom testimony.
I have more than 15 years experience in the field of Forensic Biological Sciences and Genetics. My experience includes DNA testing, advanced laboratory techniques, local crime laboratories, paternity testing and forensic serology. I am also highly knowledgeable in topics of criminalistics; genotype profiling; testing of blood, spit, and hair; human DNA identification; STR mosaicism; and environmental toxicology. I have over 10 years expert witness experience.
