Bode 2021 - Virtual and In-Person Events

Virtual: May 4-5, 2021 - Program Announced!

In-Person: October 19-22, 2021 - Denver, CO

Bode’s forensic DNA conferences highlight impact, challenges, new technologies, and best practices from industry leaders to educate on forensic identification and law enforcement investigations. Our virtual event includes an environment that enables attendees and speakers to engage on a wide-range of topics and network to share ideas.


DNA has a significant impact on improving public safety.  Demand for testing is increasing as we clear backlogs and test cases faster.  DNA technology is now more accessible than ever through technological advances in rapid DNA and forensic genealogy, and remains essential to criminal investigations.

Solving these cases is critical and offers answers to victims of crimes, but we also know that the more we can do, the better opportunity we have to prevent crime – and Prevent Tomorrow’s Victim.
