Genetics expert witnesses may be called upon for numerous types of cases, as genetics, which refers to the study of heredity in various types of organisms, is involved with many different disciplines. Genetics expert consulting may provide insightful information for cases involving such areas as microbiology, toxicology, oncology, causation analysis, biochemistry, human genetics, biology, chemistry, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, life sciences, biological sciences, infectious diseases, molecular biology, dermatology, obstetrics, gynecology, infertility issues, and many other related disciplines, each of which may be at the focus of a genetics-related court case.
Genetics research often takes place in laboratory settings, meaning that many genetics expert witnesses have experience working with laboratory research and development, laboratory testing, laboratory management, and additional areas involved with the scientific process. As with any type of research and testing taking place in laboratories, any violation of occupational and environmental health regulations may lead to potential threats for employees, as well as grounds for possible lawsuits.
Genetics experts may have a particular area of focus within the field, such as working with autoimmune disease, HIV/AIDS, paternity, evolution, DNA, molecular biology, and/or statistical analysis, among other biological issues. Some genetics experts may specialize in researching the connection between genetics and cancer, infectious diseases, or further medical issues.
