The head of the FGE, Wilbert Antonio Cetina Arjona, has followed up on the corresponding protocol, which includes the analysis of options for software installation and training of personnel, which will be assigned shortly to the FGE by the North American authorities.
Among the specialized areas that are contemplated to house the corresponding equipment, in the Institute of Forensic Sciences of the Prosecutor’s Office, is the Forensic Genetics Laboratory.
