    Isn’t there often a further issue about how that particular DNA came to be used? I.e., not only whether the DNA in question is close to the defendant’s, but also whether the DNA used for the match was planted there, or never at the crime scene at all? And as far as I could tell from Acrobat’s search function (searching on “fake” and “Frumkin”), the article doesn’t reference the recent revelations by Israeli scientists about how easy it is to fake DNA evidence.

    I’ll just add that this is a very good article. My review tried to snag it, but it looks like NYU noticed it as well.
