Uganda DNA lab hit by lack of reagents


The national analytical laboratory in Uganda has been forced to suspend DNA testing because of a lack of reagents, according to The Observer.
Uganda has been carrying out DNA testing since 2007, and in just five years, 1,747 tests have been carried out, 784 of which are for proof of paternity and 963 for police investigations. The laboratory is also carrying out testing where human remains cannot be identified, and are working in close collaboration with the Administrator General.
