A New Scottish forensics centre is set to offer the public an opportunity to trace their genetic links in a move that could boost tourism. Based at Glasgow Caledonian University, the centre will be unique by teaming traditional family history search services with modern DNA genetic profiling technology to help people from around the world trace their Scottish roots.
Dr John Gow, director of the Centre for Forensic Investigation, said that the DNA profiling service would encourage tourists to visit Scotland.
The centre, which will open its doors next Thursday, is also compiling a DNA database of various Scottish and Irish clan groups. Gow revealed that there has already been interest in the DNA technology from clan associations across the globe.
