With a team of highly qualified scientists and
dedicated client service personnel, DDC continues to be the media’s primary source for answers to DNA testing questions. Dr. Michael Baird, DDC's Laboratory Director, was the first DNA expert ever to testify in U.S. court in 1982 and has testified in numerous cases since then.

His areas of expertise include parentage testing, DNA technology, forensics, and laboratory accreditation procedures.
