DHS/S&T/PIA-024 Rapid DNA System


S&T developed the Rapid Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) System primarily to meet a need to verify family relationships (kinship) in refugee immigration processes.  The Rapid DNA System performs rapid, low-cost DNA analysis to meet this need and may also address operational needs of DHS components. S&T is conducting this PIA because the collection and analysis of DNA information raises potential privacy impacts and concerns.
